    JFK 10-10-08

    Well, I went out to see the A380 in flight for the first time on Friday and I finally did see it! Unfortunately I was by the wrong runway. They were landing on the 31's today and while my brain was telling me to wait for it by 31L, my stomach was telling me to wait for it by the McDonalds. My stomach won (lol). So while I was finishing my large coke behind the McDonalds (on that parking lot), I saw the 380 landing on 31L. I got a good shot, but unfortunately I got the "shade" side of the big bird. Still, I think it was an hour well spent. Here are a few of the pics:

    Always count on the 380 going to 31L, 22L, 13R and 4L
    They always give her the bigger runway, at least for now.

    I would love to watch her turn to final for 13R !
    The beehive hummm of the JT9D and GE CF680C2,the thunder of the JT8D-17,the rumble of the PW1830 and the high ,thin whine of the PW 545A are all music to my ears!
