The start of Research Flight 07 marks the beginning of the return flight back towards the North Pole, and then home to Colorado. The flight was 2300 miles and they were able to complete 5 dips along the way.
All instruments were up and operational, as you can see in the HIPPO III Field Catalog Instrument Status Report. If you want to learn more about the various instruments, there is wonderful information on this website in the Research Instruments section.
