HRD-tasked Vortex Evolution experiment into T.S. Barry east of Florida, 5k ft altitude, 6 fixes.
The flight took off from Miami, Fla at 01:53 Z on 08/25/1983 and landed at Miami, Fla at 07:07 Z with 6 penetrations. The mission was slated to be on 43RF, but a chip light on engine start forced us to change to 42RF and we were 2.5 hours late taking off.
The storm was just off the Florida coast, near Ft. Pierce. We flew truncated "Fig 4" pattern. The system was really weak, 10-15 knots of low-level wind only, and the notable thing was the apparent reformation of the center to the southwest in response to a developing convective line.
