you can usually look up all the flights, also the cargo flights, on www.adp.fr, the Paris Airport site. I just went there to check for you, but there was a technical error, so I am afraid I cannot help you.
Other than that, I assume it is a routing CDG-ANC-NRT, for two reasons:
1) this is the most common route for cargo planes from EUrope to NRT. They stop in Anchorage
2) also, you say it is a B742F. I think range-wise this plane would not be used for a non-stop to NRT. It could do it, but typically the 742s don't go that far as they would not carry the max. capacity of cargo. It is for these longer routes (eg HKG) that AF bought the B744F-ER.
So you can safely assume it is going to ANC first.

Got something in there you want back?
Well no, I'm 90% sure I saw an AF B742F overhead my house this afternoon at 3pm. I checked the adp site (indeed a lot of errors, but after some time I saw what I wanted) and noticed that the only thing I could have seen was that flight.
But as you say, CDG-NRT-ANC seems a bit strange, so that's why I asked the question
I need the correct info to tie up the registration...

Where do you "SEE" the Asia traffic? Over your house? Do you live near CDG or how can tell it's an AF plane, especially with this dreadful weather? I live in central Paris and couldn't possible see a plane even one flying low on approach to one of the airports here.

I see, you are more "obsessed" than me then.
When I lived in London, my kitchen window had a view right on the approach path to LHR, just about where they would extend the gear. THose were clear sights, no binoculars needed. Except that it was sometimes a little hard to tell where a given BA 757 or 744 was arriving from. Hords of them.
