It’s interesting to see that the actual flight is really different from the planned one. The planned one was straight lines over. The actual was mostly circling. Look. I was able to write this without using dozens of extra periods. :slight_smile:

The Cold Season Precipitation Experiment? Sounds very Canadian. I can run around peoples backyards with a ruler for far cheaper then keeping a DC-8 around if NASA is hiring.
