45 WEATHER 100%THUNDERSTORM FORECAST AIRPORT WEATHER FORECASTERS CONSULTED TEST RUN ON JUNE 5 SKY CLEARED HIGH HUMIDITY

46 RESULTS White out conditions caused by a huge spike in humidity. No workaround possible due to lack of heaters. No data obtained at all stations. Sky clear but path suffered a big shift.

47 HICKAM AIR FORCE BASE, Hawaii (AP) -- The Air Force said the first crash of a B-2 stealth bomber was caused by moisture in sensors and estimated the loss of the aircraft at $1.4 billion. The Air Force stopped flying B-2 stealth bombers for two months after the crash. The crash probably could have been avoided if knowledge of a technique to evaporate the moisture had been disseminated throughout the B-2 program, Maj. Gen. Floyd L. Carpenter, who headed an accident investigation board, said Thursday. A technique learned by some two years ago that had gone widely unknown and unadopted probably would have prevented the crash, Carpenter said. The technique essentially heats the sensors and evaporates any moisture before data calibrations.
