Flight Day Three: The Perfection
Today’s flight team – Nico, Mohamed, and Dan – had no lower aspiration than to complete the last mission without any mistakes. They managed to gather 6 Gigabyte of perfect data during 31 parabolas and 6 steep turns.
Philippe, who had to stay on ground this time, thinks that the third and last flight day is a jocker. He is quite right: it is the day where you get away with most amusement. During each parabola, we three experimenters had heaps of fun: spinning above our experiment, moving upside-down, shaking hand’s while floating across the aircraft, etc.
A visit in the cockpit, where four military test pilots are simultaneously at work, is always an exciting adventure!
