NOAA’s G-IV jet will collect data over Karl this afternoon

The G-IV jet is set to take off in about an hour to fly around and over Karl for a 7.5 hour mission. The jet will collect data over and around the surrounding environment of Karl. Below is the proposed flight track. The dots on the flight track (shown in green) represent the aircraft turn points. The red dots in the figure show the locations that launch weather balloons twice a day while the purple dots are the locations that launch balloons once a day.
