Take-off was scheduled for 9am rather than 8am, which gave us an extra hour of sleep. The plane stayed at the fuel pits for an hour and a half longer than expected. There were issues filling up one of the auxiliary tanks.
Thankfully, a member of the Guard aboard let us know, so we went to the Willy Field galley and refueled ourselves with coffee.
We left the runway closer to 11am, and successfully flew two mid-shelf lines. All were anxious to leave the runway and return to surveying, after more than a week of delays.
