Yes, everybody is now home safe and sound.  With so much post-expedition work to do, I'm not able to participate in these discussions as much as I'd like, but I'll take a moment here to say that our decision not to try to combine a land search with the underwater search turned out to be a wise one. 
First of all, KOK is limited by law to a maximum of 19 in the scientific party.  There's no wiggle-room to add extra berths.  We could not have added a land team if we wanted to.
Second, supporting the AUV at night and the ROV during the day kept the ship completely occupied.  The only time we were able to put people ashore during the entire time we were there was for a couple of hours on the afternoon of the 17th while the ship was making repairs to the propulsion system after rescuing the AUV that morning.

Ric,

I add my welcome home. I finally read your book and it was very helpful bounding the issue. Wish I had more time to pursue. Particularly decision making process. Details about earlier decisions in flight, PAA SOP that may be instructive to FN thinking although flying boats have more options than land planes, etc.

Hope your review of data is productive.

Regards,

JB

Thanks to all for thoughtful replies to my question about land operations.

Happy to see that Ric and crew have returned safely. Can't wait to see the Discovery broadcast.

Looking at the Discovery Channel website and their posted schedule, their program times are valid for both ET/PT.

And, as of right now, it looks like their daily schedule is only fully fleshed out through Thursday, August 16.  Stay tuned!  JITS! (Just In Time Scheduling)
LTM,

As of today they're up to 3AM on the 19th with the finish of Shark Week.  "not available" after that. I'm used to finding schedules to a month's end at channels I visit.   Not to complain though because they provide some fine programming.   
I was interested in the date/time to include in an email note to Betty - thought maybe she would be interested.  (She had said she would be interested in hearing from any of her classmates.  Since I went to all 12 years of the same schools she went to - but somewhat after, I thought I'd give it a try last month. It was apparently delivered - it didn't come back - but no reply.  :-\

Ric's answer is a good one.  I've also got a Viewer Relations question at the Discovery website asking for an answer to your question.

No. I won't get a DVD of the show until sometime after it airs.
