Mission Plan :

N43RF will fly an Aerosonde support experiment into TD#10 over the Gulf of Mexico. It will leave MacDill AFB, FL at 6:00 PM EDT, and recover at MacDill AFB, FL by 03:00 AM EDT.

Mission Summary :

Since TD #10 had gone ashore, the Aerosonde mission was cancelled. N43RF instead flew a reconnaissance mission, obtaining a 00 Z fix. The 03 Z fix was scrubbed as the system was inland by then. Take-off was at 05:59 PM EDT from MacDill AFB, FL and the plane recovered at MacDill AFB, FL at 10:36 PM EDT.
