The  NASA Gulfstream V flew from Thule Greenland back to Houston Texas today with some of the OIB field team. 

The OIB Gulfstream IV charter aircraft carried the rest of the OIB personnel and cargo back to Houston tonight. The teams will de-install the OIB remote sensing instruments from the GV aircraft tomorrow and head back to their homes on Tuesday.

Despite a late start, this was a productive deployment, flying 10 science missions in 11 deployment days. A huge “Thank-you” to everyone who worked hard to make this deployment as successful as possible!

Next sitrep will be for the NASA OIB Fall Antarctic deployment in about a month.

Until then, thanks for following along with our sitreps!
