it left very much on time this morning, 0900 am CET, a smooth and quiet take off in western direction, good view from the visitors terrace at T2.

should arrive JFK on time weather permitting.

At the moment JFK website says she is at FL360 with an ETA of 11:29. (as against 11:47)

Flight is LH8940. Not on Flightaware just yet, still in mid-Atlantic.

If it's not on Flightaware, and you saw it on JFK's website, go to flightview.com and look it up there. They also have a live feature that tracks the flight as well.

Can someone help us out here in SoCal? I work beneath LAX approach in the San Bernardino mountains (Lake Arrowhead). If I can get a track on the LAX flight, then I'll know which end of the mountain to position myself. Hurry people!!!

Flightaware recognizes the aircraft and has the flight number listed as of 10:25 Eastern time.

They don't have the live tracking available yet, however.

DLH8940 finally showed up on Flightaware.com. When I search by aircraft type (A388), the FRA-JFK flight is the only one that is displayed. I can't believe the TLS-LAX operated by QF doesn't appear on any flight tracking site or in this forum. I guess some of you aren't aren't aware there are two (2) A388s landing in America today, not just one to JFK  banghead

According to FlightTrack Live! it appears that the A388 is now officially over US Soil for the first time.

Looks like it crossed over the northeastern border of Maine at approximately 11:00am EST.

I would imagine that they're checking in with the ROBER approach (poor guy, he's just had his 4th request for info on when the A380 is coming in Big grin), I would imagine he's handling the northern approach while CAMRN handles the southern.

OK - so...just heard the ground controller at JFK say something about simultaneous landings at JFK and LAX (@ 12:30 Eastern). According to the tracker it looks like the JFK flight will be in about 30 minutes early.

Anyone else have any idea about how they'll do this?

No live cams that I'm aware of. Just heard over liveatc that they're using 22L. The folks over Long Island and eastern Queens will have a nice view.

If WNBC moves the camera away from traffic, I have cams linked here -

http://www.wiscomm.com/aviation/webcams.htm

LAX camera is available as well.

Also, For those of you with CNN Pipeline, a birdy advised they will have both the JFK and LAX in seperate windows, with the added benefit of NO TALKING HEADS!

FBOweb flight tracker says this flight is operating under VFR flight following. How can this be? Shouldn't a heavy jet such as this have a filed flight plan?

Listening to ATC

"Lufthansa 8940 Super"

Interesting.....
Direct KNOBS, maintain 2700' until established on the localizer, cleared ILS runway 26 left approach.

Well, while you are it, just shoot me.

I went to LiveATC.net
I clicked on Rober
I never watched what Media Player had up.
So I called what I clicked on.
The fact that now I have looked at Media Player it is showing 125.7 is neither here nor there as I now absolutely nothing about frequency allocations in the NY area.
As far as I am concerned 125.7 is Rober. Hell even 666.6 could be Rober as far as I am concerned, and quite frankly - I don't care either.

The atc for Heathrow now, that's another story.

pAnmAn

[Edit] Just looked. Liveatc.net says "NY Approach - ROBER Sector (JFK) NY Approach: 125.7"

Took the controller a few minutes to get comfortable with saying Lufthansa 8940 Super.

Everytime he says it he has a pregnant pause and sounds surprised that he has to say Super.

Final app speed will be 160 knots.

At least one error in that article, too - it called today's flight "the A380's first flight to North America". It first visited North America over a year ago.
