Hi

Do I need a ladder at Paris CDG? Is it allowed? How high is the fence?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Regards, Andi

Man if I were to talk a ladder to a U.S. airport I would probably have 10 police officers with guns pointed at me.

A ladder is allowed at some airports in europe.

It may be a good idea to take a fairly short ladder with you if you want to take some shots in the late afternoon near T1.

In the morning there is a spot opposite the Sofitel - between the two terminals. Its a good vantage point where the fence is in a dip.

Visit http://www.kerozen.org for more info.

hi,

If you want to shoot photos on the left side from the meteo (between the bridge over the moterway Paris - Brussels and the meteo ) you need a 5 steps ladder.
When you shoot photos around T1 ( late afternoon ) you need also a ladder.
Holes in the fence coming later  Smile

cheers

Gust,

I'm not sure I know that place by the Meteo you mention. The popular Meteo spot was closed off several months ago, but maybe you are somewhere else. If this is a different spot what kind of shots can you get there and are there any examples you can link to on the net?

come at Paris CDG before 1 month, the 27R is opened until the L is closed for maitenance, a really good moment to take pictures, aircraft was passing very close to you at landing or take off , you can look some pictures i've taken 1 or 2 days ago http://www.airliners.net/open.file/394412/M/

now for the south rwys , many of the CDG 1 liners come take off there because of the short lenght of the active north rwy , the fences are too high for a ladder .

Hello Andi;

was there last weekend; neither for the morning spot, nor for the afternoon spot (the ones at the TWY's, linking T1 and T2) you are obliged to have a ladder, nevertheless a small one, two steps are enough, is a bonus for the afternoon spot;

have a great time at CDG

Just got back from CDG last weekend, and you have to take a small 3 step ladder to get over some fences at several spots. At the morning spot it is not a must, but it will give better shots because you can avoid the top of the fence like that.

What sort of fence are we talking about at CDG?
Some camera lenses will fit through some fences.
Perhaps spotter sites could start noting the diameters of any mesh fences!
