The first test flight before the northbound PEGASOS campaign has taken place yesterday.

Preliminary data from this flight helps to get the scientists acquainted with the optimal way to run the instruments during the upcoming field campaign.

Scientists and ZLT coworkers worked hard to make this flight happen.

Everyone was excited to see the Zeppelin take off with the
scientific equipment for the first time in 2013.

The most current weather forecast makes a second test flight on Sunday highly likely. Afterwards, the photochemistry cabin layout is going to be installed, so that the trip north can start on Monday without any delays.
