Mission Plan :

NOAA 42RF will fly an EMC-tasked TDR mission in Tropical Depression Tomas in the Caribbean Sea. The P-3 will leave St. Croix, USVI at 2000 UTC and will recover back at St. Croix, USVI by 0300 UTC of the following day. The plan is to do a figure- 4 with 90 nm legs. The flight track time is calculated for 11,000ft. We would like to fly at 10,000ft (pressure). We will be doing drops at the end points of the legs.
