On December 15, 2016 at 13:37 UTC, a winged Orbital ATK Pegasus XL rocket was dropped from the belly of L-1011 “Stargazer” carrier jet off the east coast of Florida and fired into orbit with eight research satellites to fly around the tropics and return measurements of winds at the cores of hurricanes.
