Ascent Trip Report

With a work colleague. We were sent to survey the dunes to map the high point with an altimeter to verify the maps of the time in support of an Air Force flight test program where the test aircraft were flying terrain following over these dunes. It was a very cool assignment for a couple of young engineers!
