    JFK Wednesday, March 21 (A380)

    Okay, now that Monday's over with, on with Wednesday's planning!

    Thanks to Moose, it seems the latest word on the media flight is that it will depart JFK approx. 8:45 AM and arrive back approx. 10:30 AM.

    EDIT: Per Ron's post (pg 2), departure is approx. 9:00 AM.

    Weather currently shows sunny all day.

    Who's planning on attending?

    I will be there. Looks like Bayswater Park for the departure; then on to Rockaway Blvd for the arrival.

    Now the forecast is for sunny but in the mid-30's, better dress up warmly for the early morning chill at Bayswater.

    Hope to meet more of you guys there.

    I'm planning on coming to New York on Wednesday, but where exactly are these spotting locations? I am not at all familiar with the city. Are they close to the airport?

    Check out http://nycaviation.com/jfkspotting. It's a great resource for spots around JFK.

    Does any one know which terminal it will leave from? And which runway it would use?
    I will try to be there.

    I'll be there for the arrival.

    I was going to be there for the departure, but since it's been brought forward I can't make it in time. I have to pick up a rental car at 8am in Lakewood, NJ.

    Hello all, I'm brand-new to planespotting and would love to go out to see the A380 tomorrow. That link with the various spotting locations is great -- are some of them recommended over others? (I don't have a car and will be relying on subway/bus.) Any other tips?

    Many thanks.

    It all depends on which runway she uses...

    hey guys, I'm new here. Found you guys out of my interest to see the A380, missed it on monday. According to flightaware i saw earlier that it was due back from ORD tonight at about 10pm? If that's the case then where is it arriving from tomorrow morning?

    I have the day off, so will get a 4am wakeup call to drive down and will spot whole day. Anyone up for a I-Hop breakfast before we catch the beast?
