And late Tuesday night, lasting through the day on Wednesday, the Global Hawk may make a return outside of its scheduled research mission period that has already ended:

"Global Hawk: Is tentatively scheduled for a mission over Matthew. Take off is scheduled for 0200 UTC (10PM Eastern) from NASA's Armstrong Research Flight Facility, Edwards, CA. This flight is part of NOAA's Sensing Hazards with Operational Unmanned Technology (SHOUT) field campaign."

From: https://noaahrd.wordpress.com/

In late September the SHOUT daily scheduled said:

"The sensors will remain on the aircraft, and an alert posture may be re-established. Possible flight next week to Gulf (TBD), so instruments are expected to remain on aircraft until further notice."

From: http://uas.noaa.gov/shout/dailysched.html

The aircraft was ferried from Virginia to California at the end of September when the research period ended.

Will there possibly be one more flight before Matthew hits Cuba?

Looks like recon is not going back to the island but to Keesler or some other base.

The Air Force plane to replace the one that returned transmitted for 30 minutes on the ground at Keesler AFB in Biloxi and then stopped. Nothing in awhile.

Meanwhile, G-IV is back and P-3 will soon be taking off from MacDill AFB in Tampa.

"NOAA's G-IV jet is up and ready to fly around Hurricane Matthew. The jet will take off at 1:30 PM Eastern (1730 UTC) from MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, FL. Below is the proposed flight track today's flight. The aircraft will collect data ahead of Matthew's projected path and in the Gulf of Mexico. The dots indicate where the G-IV will launch dropsondes."

G-IV proposed track:

"The NOAA43 hurricane hunter aircraft is set to take off at 2PM Eastern (1800 UTC) from MacDill Air Force Base, Tampa, FL for an eight hour mission. The data collected on this and all other flights go into the computer forecast models to improve the prediction of Matthew's track and intensity. 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."

P-3 proposed track:

"Global Hawk: Is scheduled to fly a mission over Matthew. Take off is scheduled for 0200 UTC (10:00PM Eastern) from NASA's Armstrong Research Flight Facility, Edwards, CA. This flight is part of NOAA's Sensing Hazards with Operational Unmanned Technology (SHOUT) field campaign."

"As part of NOAA’s Sensing Hazards with Operational Unmanned Technology (SHOUT) field campaign the Global Hawk is scheduled to fly tonight for a 24-h mission over Hurricane Matthew. The Global Hawk will take off at 7PM Pacific (10PM Eastern) from NASA’s Armstrong Research Flight Facility, in Edwards, CA. Here is the proposed flight track for the Global Hawk. The squares on the flight track (in blue) indicate where the Global Hawk will launch dropsondes."
