Day 4 - Tuesday, June 25, 2024

We arrived safely to our destination in Colorado and settled down into the house where we are staying for the next three weeks yesterday. Today was right to work!

We installed two racks into a NOAA Twin Otter plane. The team spent the day unloading the rack and instrumentation from the transport vehicles and tested the instruments in the hangar. Luckily all instruments functioned properly. The team then reinstalled them into the aircraft. Instrumentation installation will be finalized and ground tested independent of the rest of the aircraft payload tomorrow.
