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.
