    It came to 22L the first time, but there's no reason that it can't use other runways. The day after it arrived, when it was doing a media flight, it used one of the 13/31s. So it'll definitely have to be a day-of (maybe even hour-of) decision based on the winds & runways.

    I'll try to take the day off and get out there. I haven't seen spotting in a while.

    I'll be there with a fellow Futt-ographer. We'll probably be out early that morning, so I'm sure we'll run into plenty of you as the day goes on.

    Phil D. - looking forward to catching up this time around.

    I'm going to do my best to make it out although my motivation to see the A380 isn't that high since it will be here everyday, not sure if its worth leaving work early. I'm guessing she'll come in on the 22s but it would be really nice if she came on the 13s. A shot of her from that baseball field banking would be top notch.

    One thing to keep in mind is that it won't be daily until October and when it enters on EK201/202 on August 8th it will arrive at 2:00pm when the light is a little tougher then at 4:45pm.

    Which baseball field are you referring to? I don't remember ever shooting from a baseball field for the 13s, but would love to know of a good spot to nail those sweet 13L banks.

    By the way, I don't know if you know the answer to this related question, but I think I saw some pictures a while back of afternoon 4R arrivals and I have no idea where they were shot from. The planes were in the air with gear down, and perfectly lit. Is there an afternoon spot for shooting 4R arrivals?

    It's on the airport near the Federal Circle. With the cargo area pretty much out of service for shooting, you are limited for the 13s. I saw this spot a while back and asked a few of our JFK folks about it, but I don't know that any of us have shot from there yet, and don't know how PAPD will react.

    Its across from the Cell phone waiting lot and old Tower Air terminal and the NAA building. The only problem is parking, you'd have to park in long term, take the train to Federal Circle and walk. Or if you know you want something park in the cell phone lot, snap and move on.

    What 4R pics are you talking about? Do you know who took them?
