I think we're pretty much there now with the post landing footage. Thanks to Centaur and David for the help with the coverage!

NASA:

Expedition 50 Commander Shane Kimbrough of NASA is among three crew members from the International Space Station (ISS) who returned to Earth Monday, after 173 days in space, landing in Kazakhstan at approximately 7:20 a.m. EDT (5:20 p.m. Kazakhstan time).

Also returning were Flight Engineers Sergey Ryzhikov and Andrey Borisenko of the Russian space agency Roscosmos. The three touched down southeast of the remote town of Dzhezkazgan in Kazakhstan.

While living and working aboard the space station, the Expedition 50 crew members contributed to hundreds of experiments in biology, biotechnology, physical science and Earth science aboard the world-class orbiting laboratory. For example, the Microgravity Expanded Stem Cells investigation had crew members observe cell growth and other characteristics in microgravity. Results from this investigation could lead to the treatment of diseases and injury in space, and provide a way to improve stem cell production for medical therapies on Earth.

The Tissue Regeneration-Bone Defect study, a U.S. National Laboratory investigation sponsored by the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) and the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command, studied what prevents vertebrates, such as rodents and humans, from regenerating lost bone and tissue, and how microgravity conditions impact the process. Results will provide a new understanding of the biological reasons behind a humanís inability to regrow a lost limb at the wound site, and could lead to new treatment options for the more than 30 percent of the patient population who do not respond to current options for chronic, non-healing wounds.

During his time on the orbital complex, Kimbrough ventured outside the confines of the space station for four spacewalks. During the first two in January, Kimbrough installed adapter plates and hooked up electrical connections for six new lithium-ion batteries on the space station. The new lithium-ion batteries and adapter plates replaced nine nickel-hydrogen batteries used on the station to store electrical energy generated by the stationís solar arrays. Kimbrough also took part in two spacewalks in March, completing a variety of tasks including work to disconnect and then setup Pressurized Mating Adapter-3 following its robotic move, install two upgraded computer relay boxes on the stationís truss and install shields and covers on several external station locations.

The returning crew members also welcomed four cargo spacecraft delivering several tons of supplies and research experiments. Orbital ATKís Cygnus spacecraft arrived to the station, shortly after the crew in October, delivering supplies to the orbiting laboratory. The sixth Japanese H-II Transfer Vehicle launched to the station in December and delivered new lithium-ion batteries that were installed during a combination of robotics and spacewalks. A SpaceX Dragon cargo resupply spacecraft arrived to the station in February. A Russian ISS Progress cargo spacecraft also docked to the station in February.

Kimbrough now has spent 189 days in space on two flights. Borisenko now has 337 days in space on two flights. Ryzhikov logged 173 days in space on his first flight.

Expedition 51 continues operating the station, with NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson in command. Along with her crewmates Oleg Novitskiy of Roscosmos and Thomas Pesquet of ESA (European Space Agency), the three-person crew will operate the station until the arrival of two new crew members. NASAís Jack Fischer and Fyodor Yurchikhin of Roscosmos are scheduled to launch Thursday, April 20 from Baikonur, Kazakhstan.

Soon, Crew departs Landing Site to Karaganda for a two hours flight and a short ceremony and then, for Kimbrough to JSC Houston & for Ryzhikov and Borisenko to Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center (GCTC). "Star City" near Moscow...

I caught two brief references to preparing for a water landing??  One was from the guy in the red "rescue?" jacket who pinned a medal on the lead helicopter pilot after the landing.  One was during a replay of the astronauts being carried to the medical tent where I think someone said "we went swimming once" or something like that.  Obviously today's landing was a pinpoint landing right on target.  I imagine these references were simply discussions of standard preparation for any off nominal landings.  Where is the nearest body of water?  Are there lakes in the general area of potential landing zones?

Made me think to Soyuz 23, Oct. 16, 1976, who land on partially frozen Lake Tengiz

Expedition 50 Crew Receives a Warm Welcome in Kazakhstan

Quote
Expedition 50 Commander Shane Kimbrough of NASA and Soyuz Commander Sergey Ryzhikov and Flight Engineer Andrey Borisenko of Roscosmos were greeted in a traditional ceremony at the airport in Karaganda, Kazakhstan April 10, a few hours after landing in their Soyuz MS-02 spacecraft in Kazakhstan near the town of Dzhezkazgan. After the ceremony, the crew split up, with Ryzhikov and Borisenko returning to their training base in Star City, Russia, while Kimbrough flew back to his home in Houston on a NASA jet. The trio spent 173 days in space.
