Campaign diary on 1 october 2008

The day of our last T-PARC mission: The excitement was kept up to the very last minute. After refuelling in Iwakuni they started a customs search in the Falcon. God knows what they were looking for. We have refuelled there three times without problems - and we did not even leave Japan before. We needed to cut the last part of the flight in consequence, but otherwise the mission was successful. The first part of the flight intended to go through the center of the remnants of Jangmi. On the satellite image we could not really see anything any more, but I guess we were roughly in the right spot.
