Do I understand it right that it is allowed to make pictures of planes as long as there are no airport buildings on it? There are a few final approach spots on the perimeter that would still be allowed if this where the case.

Quoting Jorge1812 (Reply 5): Yes that is it saying, but I don't want to mess with a French Cop on this
Now that leaves so much room for poor-taste jokes about the history of French-German relations....
However, I do see what you're saying, and I don't like messing with cops either. Especially the ones in Nassau, stoking their machine guns while giving you a lecture like some sick psychopath.
But the last bit makes me wonder: Do the respective authorities have a "spotters office" where you could register and obtain the necessary permission? While I am all for civic liberties, I do understand security concerns, and if they can implement some system that enables enthusiasts to enjoy their hobby AND make sure that spotting is not going to be abused by the wrong folks, that may be the way...
I'm an aviation expert. I have Sky Juice for breakfast.
Did the photographer of that photograph have written permission signed in triplicate while in the presence of 2 independent adjudicator's to witness the aforementioned signing of the aforementioned document to take the aforementioned photograph!

I read and understand this sign in a totally different way.
Where it says..."It is forbidden to take photos or to film for private purposes from the public area any object, facility or building in the security restricted area.........."
I read this to mean that while YOU are in the "CDG PUBLIC AREAS" you cannot photograph as outlined. To me this means the public areas enclosed within the CDG property. Such as the terminals, parking lots, etc.
I don't take this to mean that if you are outside the airport on other public lands that you cannot aim your camera inside the fence.
Would take a damn lawyer to argue this one in court. But who wants to be the trial case?
