Picture was taken on Saturday, 9/8/08, between 12 and 1pm, she was flying eastbound on UL607 (DCT BOMBI).
Photo was taken from Maastricht (NL) but the aircraft flew in Belgian airspace.

I think he means UAE202/203 which routes DXB-JFK-DXB. It passes over usually about 9am on JFK-DXB and on way back about 3pm.

Freddie - So your going on the A380! Dont forget to bring your camera and take some air-to-air shots, if your sitting next to the window anyway.

Oh I did, over the gulf to oz and through to Auckland, you can see some of the shots at [url]http://www.flickr.com/photos/ssniffer all my collections are there from various places I've been to, including my latest trip to EHAM. I havent got the equipment for trail photography yet, but I think I will be looking towards getting it together quite soon.
