Moscow-Holmes Mop-Up

OIB completed the “Moscow-Holmes Mop-Up” mission today, combining portions of two previous missions where fuel limitations caused an early returns to Hobart and certain flight-lines were not flown. OIB completed this mission in good weather and all remote sensing instruments operating well.

OIB will attempt another mission tomorrow, weather permitting.
