Campaign diary on 27 August 2008
The day started with further tests of the wind lidar, somewhat disturbed by the media interest in
the operations. Japanese National TV visited, "Stars and Stripes" asked for an interview and the
next TV team (National Geographic) is already scheduled for tomorrow. In the afternoon, the test
flight was performed that mainly showed that wind lidar is NOT worked as it appeared to be on the
ground. Thus a down day was declared for the crew on the following day.
