Which airlines uses the call sign "Pelican". I ve checked the usual lists and cant find it.
It sounded like a Russian accent so my guess is its an AN124 operator.
The Flight was Pelican 8602Heavy into JFK, but I cant find a record of the operator.

FAA database has "Pelican" belonging to "Ramp 66" of North Myrtle Beach, SC. Doesn't sound like someone who would be flying an Antonov.

Perhaps you heard wrong?

No, I'm pretty sure thats what it was, as the controller repeated the call sign for the readback.
Is there an AN-124 at JFK right now? It landed approx 5pm EST 26Apr

Can't find anything on Flightaware - perhaps if you can point to a specific time in the LiveATC.net archives when you hear this, I could take a closer listen.

EDIT: Found it. It's "White Pelican", not "Pelican". "White Pelican" is CargoItalia. I've seen them only once by the Korean Air Cargo area - they must be pretty new to JFK. As for what type of plane, it could either be a 767, MD-11 or 747 - my memory of it isn't very good.

The voice, therefore, is Italian, not Russian. Which makes sense, as it didn't sound very Russian to me.

EDIT #2 (more than ASF on the pull): Apparently, my memory was pretty bad, as CargoItalia flies DC-10s:
