There is definitely a wheel and landing gear just off the beach where it should be and a debris field underneath.

See reply 101 and 102 of this thread. It may be what you are seeing that was already dicussed, but I am not sure since it is way too big to be a landing gear and may very well be "dust" or a flaw.
I agree with Andrew's post. It's not too long to wait and they are likely already on the way there to get a clean and hi res image. See the schedule on Facebook.

Thank you Ted for your generous contribution. As for the folks who feel it's not necessary for Ric and Jeff to go the NZ, I suggest; Would you trust someone describing how to do a circumcision over the phone on your new born son? I think NOT!

On the "NW" picture, does anyone know what the large dark object the appears to be floating up against the beach around the point on the north side?  Rectangle in shape, is it a vessel of some type?

It's a big chunk of coral.  It's still there.

A good example of how misleading some of these shapes in these photographs can be....and usually are.     
Thanks!

Around noon Wednesday (7/10) in Christchurch (they're 16 hours ahead of East Coast time), this short entry was put on Facebook:

News from Ric and Jeff in Christchurch, New Zealand -- the detail available in these photos is incredible. Spent the morning setting up the technical side, about to start shooting the copy photos. Well worth the trip!

That widget hasn't worked for me for a long time.

When it stopped working, I put a link to the TIGHAR Facebook page on a tab at the top of every Forum page:

Marty, I guess I've got the right kind of ju-ju! The widget works fine for me.  :D  (provided I'm using Firefox)

Ditto on my Windows 8 IE11 machine though it can drag the loading of the site down when the wind is blowing from the wrong direction  :P
