NASA Coral Reef Imaging missions conclude - N198GS GLF4

NASA Coral Reef Imaging missions have concluded today with the aircraft departing Cairns this morning for its return to the U.S.

N198GS flew 11 missions over the Great Barrier Reef using a Portable Remote Imaging Spectrometer from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory California Institute of Technology. The Gulfstream IV has been modified for the NASA mission with the placement of this camera.

The aircraft arrived on the 2/9/2016 from Majuro and departed today to Majuro.

Below are a series of pictures of the aircraft detailing some of the equipment used for the missions.

Special thanks to the crew and agent who made this possible.
