The third flight of the Antarctic Impulsive Transient Antenna (ANITA) Long Duration Balloon payload was completed in January of this year after 23 days at float. ANITA's goal is the detection of ultra-high energy neutrinos via the Askaryan effect in the Antarctic ice sheets, and utilizes radio-detected ultra-high energy cosmic rays as instrument validation. We discuss instrument performance during the flight, and show examples of some of the data.
