TINT: T-28 Instrument Test 1998


During the T-28 Instrument Test 1998 (TINT), the armored T-28 deployed to Ft. Collins-Loveland Airport (FNL), for two weeks in June 1998 for flight tests of new and refurbished research equipment. New equipment included a Science Engineering Associates (SEA) data acquisition system, a Droplet Measurement Technologies (DMT) liquid water probe, a video recording system,  a prototype Stratton Park Engineering Corporation High Volume Particle Spectrometer Probe (HVPS), and two systems of electric field meters mounted in underwing pods from the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology (NMIMT). A newly refurbished Particle Measuring Systems, Inc. (PMS) Forward Scattering Spectrometer Probe (FSSP), was also flown for the first time. In-flight guidance was available to the pilots from the ground via radio link with the CSU-CHILL S-band meteorological research radar. Six research flights in small to large convective storms, in the vicinity of the CHILL radar, were carried out within the two-week program.
