Correct me if im wrong, but arent they using this call sign because the bird requires 10mi seperation?

Correct me if im wrong, but arent they using this call sign because the bird requires 10mi seperation?

Your wrong and right, depending on the airspace all aircraft require 10min separation (like procedural controlling), super in these terms was recommended by ICAO last year. (Did you mean 10 min or 10 nm ?)

The relevant FAA reason is as follows "The A380 is in the "Heavy" aircraft weight category. However, wake vortices generated by the A380 are more substantial than those of other aircraft in the Heavy wake turbulence category, thus requiring special designation ("Super") and additional wake turbulence separation during certain segments of flight. The A380 may therefore identify itself as [call sign] "Super" in radio communications with air traffic control. "

Wow!!! It literally flew right over my house! Very low too!

I was watching it live on WGN 9 News and I'm like, hey, maybe I'll be able to see it in the distance from my front door (faces general direction of O'Hare which is about 10 miles north). So I grabbed my camera, walked outside and heard a tremendous roar, looked up, and there it was!!! What a lucky shot...

Well...makes sense given that the end of 4R/22L is literally about 200 ft from the T5 hardstands.

It did indeed land on 4R. There was a crowd of people around the cargo buildings to the side of the runway and a bunch more crowding Mannheim Rd. to get a glimpse of it on the hardstand.

Did anybody else see this when they were watching the ABC 7 coverage. It seems like an AA MD80 was on final approach (or something) and it almost looked like they were going to collide. Now I know it was an optical allusion (unless the MD80 has miraculously increased its overall length to be the same as an A380), but STILL, when I was watching this, at first I was like HOLY COW LOOK OUT!

I've been following the events from the SFO area - I can't believe they landed on 4R! From what I had heard/ read, I thought only a 32L/14R landing was possible. So much for the 200' wide runway-only rule!
