Is Arnie working JFK? G

Does anyone know if these will use an "experimental" call sign?

The A380 has received both FAA and JAA/EASA certification in December,
2006.

Yes, but which one will actually land first?
LAX was crying because they were originally promised to have the first A380
flight.
Apparently they made it a big issue for them to have the first A380 before
any other city.

I still say "If it ain't Boeing it ain't going".
Or for you linguists "If it is not Boeing, it is not going".

It would be HILARIOUS to hear Arnie working that beast!

Expect both JFK and LAX LiveATC.net feeds to be packed.

Good question. FlightAware should already have both tracked
right now. You should be able to look them up by destination.

PUBLIC VIEWING SITE FOR HISTORIC ARRIVAL OF AIRBUS A380 AT LAX
ANNOUNCED



(Los Angeles, California ? March 16, 2007) In anticipation of several
thousand people arriving at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to
view the historic landing of the Airbus A380 ? the world's largest
airliner ? airport officials today announced a recommended site
adjacent to the airport where the landing may be viewed by the public.

The aircraft is scheduled to touchdown at 9:30 a.m. PDT on Monday,
March 19, 2007, on the northside of the airport and taxi to the Flight
Path Learning Center/LAX Imperial Terminal on the southside of the
airport for a by-invitation-only arrival ceremony.

The recommended viewing site, Northside Parkway, is adjacent to the
airport?s north airfield perimeter fence and can be accessed by walking
westbound along Westchester Parkway for approximately 1.25 miles west
of Sepulveda Blvd. The entire distance of Northside Parkway (from
McConnell Avenue on the east to Loyola Blvd. on the west) will be
closed beginning at 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 18, 2007. Spectators
should arrive at Northside Parkway after 5 a.m. on Monday, March 19.

The public is advised to use public transportation to Westchester, a
Los Angeles community north of the airport, or park in public parking
lots such as LAX Economy Parking Lot C at 96th Street and Sepulveda
Blvd. Several privately-operated public parking facilities are also
located in Westchester along Sepulveda Blvd. and Century Blvd. No
stopping or parking will be allowed on Lincoln Blvd., a major
thoroughfare on the north side of the airport.

It is anticipated that there may be traffic congestion which may result
in intermittent street closures around the area. Therefore, the public
is encouraged to use public transportation and arrive early.

Overnight sleeping or camping around the airport's perimeter fence,
including at Northside Parkway, is prohibited by Los Angeles City
ordinance and will be strictly enforced. Prospective observers planning
to stay in the airport area on Sunday night are encouraged to visit the
airport's website at www.lawa.org for a list of airport-area hotels. In
particular, hotels along Century Blvd. and Airport Blvd. ? two airport
access streets into LAX -- have rooms overlooking the airport's north
airfield or aircraft landing path.

On Monday, viewers on the southside of the airport will be able to see
the A380 on approach (but not actual "touchdown" on the runway) and the
aircraft taxiing into the LAX Imperial Terminal ramp. There are no
recommended viewing sites on airport property along Imperial Highway on
the southside of the airport.

The Flight Path Learning Center and adjacent airport property will be
closed to the public on Monday, March 19 and Tuesday, March 20, for
private events related to the A380. It will reopen to the public at 10
a.m. on Wednesday, March 21.

The aircraft is scheduled to depart LAX on the southside of the airport
between 7:15 p.m. and 7:45 p.m. on Tuesday, March 20, and can only be
viewed from the southside. Viewers may park at Dockweiler Beach, owned
and operated by the Los Angeles County Department of Beaches and
Harbors, to see the aircraft taking off overhead.

I'm just as much an aviation gonzo as anybody, but I can't see camping
out around the airport fence to watch the 380 fly in...

Flav8R,

I still say "If it ain't Boeing it ain't going".


You saying "the earth is flat" would be about as meaningful.
