For anyone interested, the new A380 will be flying into JFK this morning. Here's the article from MSNBC:

Should make a cool listen.

Just heard a pilot ask the tower controller what time he'll be in - he said the current estimate is 12.30.

What JFK feed would be the best bet for hearing the A380? Tower?

Two or Three pilots already asked when it will arrive on the tower feed. Tower said 12:30pm at terminal 1.

everytime the controller on rober says 'super' he says it in such a way that he can't quite believe he's saying it...like a long pause before he says it.

pilot just said he can come in at 12.10 rather than 12.15. controller said he was orbiting over the area of a bridge but i didn't catch which one....

A380 changed to ground and he asked them to contact another freq. when the pilot asked if he wanted him to stay with him he joked 'you've probably got about 8 radios with the size of that thing'
