AirSpex 2007

5.2. Dornier flights


As previous years this years plan for the AirSpex was to fly the Dornier from Lufttansport AS. Due to bad weather conditions and the plane being occupied by the Coastguard it was not possible to get flying hours in the airplane. This was a major setback of the operation Airspex 2007, because this plane intended the role of being the main platform of measurements. Of this reason the GPScam was not used in this years’ campaign beyond the test-phase described in the Preparations chapter.
