    To celebrate the arrival of the A380 to SFO, there will be a A380 Plane Spotting Party on May 10, starting at 11:00AM at Bayfront Park in Millbrae (for those not familiar, this location is really nice spot by the San Francisco Bay with great views of arriving and departing traffic at SFO).

    There will be various giveaways planned including registration for a chance to win 2 tickets on Lufthansa's A380, free lunch for the first 100 to register for this drawing and FourSquare specials.

    For more details see here.

    I'm hoping to make it- it looks like fun. Today I saw the 747 coming in right over my head in Foster City. Last one for awhile!

    Well I didn't make it to the party yesterday, but today the A380 flew right over my head in Redwood City. What a beast!

    Was sitting in the SQ lounge when it came it - didn't realize there were any "specials" (drats just joined 4square b/c spg promo), but I did get to see the water saute:)

    That's it, way in the background. By the time it actually arrived I had killed the batteries in my real camera. :(

    The party out in the park was a lot of fun. Raffle for free tix (I didn't win) and trivia for more toys (I did win one of those).

    Plus a great location for watching the planes come and go.

    There was another party that was press-only (until we crashed it) inside the terminal in the boarding area. Also quite a spread, both of food and toys. :D
