We took off for AC20 with three mission objectives: (a) to have another coordinated flight with the American G1, to sample outflow (because we had the feeling that the data collected so far for the outflow mission type were not yet complete), and (c) finally to collect more cloud profile data. Because of missing clouds we failed with the attempt to collect more measurements for the coordinated flight with the G1 (mission objective a). However, in particular the outflow sampling was very successful.
We picked a textbook outflow on our way and crossed it in numerous altitudes perpendicular and parallel. We were flying above and below this poor outflow cloud. This made sense because amazingly the cloud seemed quite stable during the 2.5 hours it took us to sample it. Near the end of the sampling the outflow descended, and lost momentum.
