You could shoot the SN 340's from across the runway but with a pretty long lens 300-400 (?). Going to Chateauroux seems a waste of time to me.

www.kerozen.org is indeed the best site for spotting info about CDG and ORY. Info is a bit outdated but most spots are still accessible. The meteo spot is partially fenced off : still possible to take taxi shots with terminal 1 on the background but no more runway-shots. I heard that it is impossible to take pictures from the bridge over the A1 highway also.
For ORY : try the hill in the parc 'la coulé verte' (open between 9am and 5.30pm).
PS : anybody has info about the CargoLion DC8 at Chateauroux? I heard it has a new reg 4K-AZ25 and will fly for AHC.

In my opinnion , Chateaurox is waste of time.
There´s no worth traffic for spotting. Better stay at CDG / OYE.
OYE have also a good obs. deck. Spotting @ CDG is a little bit complicated.
With a little lens you can spot line ups and landings.
The terminals are also okay for spotting , but you´ll need a boarding pass and you have to photograph with the sun in the back or your photos will be blurred.
