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'

As a UK Listener and for anyone else the A380 can be heard on KJFK Tower and Delivery/Ground  between 1600 -1630  GMT

Also the ground controller is just "awesome" when anyone is asking can they watch the A380 he is so accomodating.

No, I disagree.  I think they'd both be screaming for someone to let them out of those caskets Cheesy
