Abstract : The 1976 Skyhook program provided sufficient funding and balloons for an attempted twelve flights from the Sioux falls, S. D. and Watertown, S.D. areas. Eight flights were successfully launched but a telemetry transmitter failed on one, reducing scientific exposure to seven flights. These seven flights provided over 196 hours at float altitude for the various experiments. This report describes individual flights, equipment used, flight data, and other program information.
