    Taken from the T&C from this thread (http://nycaviation.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5644)

    One (1) winner will receive a pair of tickets to a reception at JFK Airport Wednesday, March, 21, 2007 at 4:00pm followed by a tour the World's largest Jet, the Airbus A380.
    So the A380 will definitely be on the ground at JFK on March 21.

    Mike, Affirmative.

    I can only imagine what a Tom Turner 31L departure would be like with the A380.

    So far, the 10 day forecast on Intellicast.com is showing partly cloudy and 43 degrees for 3/19. Hope it stays like that!

    Looks like 21st might be an even more opportune day for spotting - you get a take off and a landing in a span of what 30 min to 1hr?? that too in morning light.

    Hopefully the winds will be in favor and you get a 31L departure and a sweet bank before canarsie. That would be nice.

    What would be even nicer, a touch-n-go at EWR!! OHH YEAH!

    That's what I'm thinking too.

    Furthermore, I can't leave work for 3 days for a "dumb airplane" and could only get away for one viewing. Looks like the 21st has the best bang for the buck.

    Yeah, I confirmed with the boss this morning - she's been out of town the last week & a half, and I was worried I would get a hassle, but I got the day off. I may need to see if I can make Wednesday a "late day" and get the morning demo flight departure & arrival.

    Just wanted to make everyone aware, if anyone cares, Joey Collura and myself intend on being present on the 19th at JFK to watch this beast's first arrival at JFK, pending flight availability on Delta. Looking forward to seeing many people out there!
