You might be interested in three articles from the NOAA Satellite and Information Service plus a Flicker page with some still photos:
- March 22nd -- Scientists begin Field Campaign for NOAA's GOES-16

- June27th -- Hunting for lightning: a day at the GOES-16 post launch field campaign
- Flicker page with still photos from GOES-16 Field Campaign
The field Campaign was completed on May 17, 2017 (see p 3 of the 2nd Quarter 2017GOES R (aka GOES-16) Newsletter). The folk at the GOES-16 Field Campaign released a six-minute on June 27th providing more details on what was involved in the field campaign including some images of the earth taken from NOAA's U2 plane used in the field campaign. I think that you will enjoy this video, I know that I did. I found the video on this page on GOES-R dot gov, with a grid showing other videos on the GOES-R/16 mission.
