    Six flux transfer events (FTEs) were encountered during MESSENGER’s first two flybys of Mercury (M1 and M2). For M1 the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) was predominantly northward and four FTEs with durations of 1 to 6 s were observed in the magnetosheath following southward IMF turnings. The IMF was steadily southward during M2, and an FTE 4 s in duration was observed just inside the dawn magnetopause followed approx. 32 s later by a 7-s FTE in the magnetosheath. Flux rope models were fit to the magnetic field data to determine FTE dimensions and flux content.
