Take a guess.. Runway 23/05 or 24L/24R/06s?

I am going to see it land and I am staying on RWY 23 to try my luck.. Winds forecast 180 degree about 10 knots..  Probably Airport Road will be jammed and cannot 'switch' runway easily

Usually European/Atlantic arrivals lands on the 23 but for the A380 who knows. 

Won't be disappointing since it is coming every Mon/Wed/Fri so plenty chance to see :)

Water Gun salute?

Im not so worried about a large enough runway.... I wonder if they have a large enough stand(gate) for that thing!!!

I'm listening on their channel to see if I can catch the clearance for landing.
