Check liveatc.net for KJFK select Archives and take KJFK TOWER at 16:00Z on the date of 19/03. You will be able to listen while Tower gives historical "clear to land" call to the "Super".

The landing roll of the other A380 that landed in LAX was weird and all but magestic....it was already on the ground but pilot flying gives it a hard shake with the rudder...

Greets to ya all

Well until the flare all seems ok, just the last part where you see the remaining wheels touching down looks so unstable...
