I have other obligations, and won’t be able to post recon, or much to the Michael obs thread for at least today and tomorrow.
If someone else could help, that would be great.

Anyone wants to volunteer to post the next missions of this afternoon and evening? I have things to do this afternoon so I will not be all the time.

FYI, I don't think mission #4 (leaving at 1700z, 1pm EDT) is actually going to get center fixes. The notes say "buoy drops", they're only on station for three hours, and the forecast position (note D.) is NA. The next missions for center fixes are #6 (NOAA) departing at 2000z (4:00pm EDT) and #7 (Air Force) departing at 2130z (5:30pm EDT). First center fixes from those should be around 2230z (6:30pm EDT).

The first of those two recon flights (AF) just took off from Biloxi. If anyone is following the flights, note these will be missions 11 and 12, not 12 and 13 as originally posted in the plan of the day. The original 11 was canceled and replaced with the research flight currently circling Michael. The first center fix should be around 4:30 EDT (3:30 CDT).

AF301 (mission #11) is heading home. The NOAA plane (mission 12) should be out there for a couple more hours, then there will be a three hour gap until the first of the next two planes gets back in there.
