Aircraft At CDG, How Visible From This Location?

Thu Dec 23, 2004 1:11 am

Sheraton Paris Airport Hotel Charles de Gaulle

I see there is a hotel which looks likes a ships keel and its right at CDG. How many runways does CDG have and is this building nestled between the runways?

Mirrodie,
CDG has 4 paralel runways: 2 on the north,2 on the south. The terminal 2, the Sheraton and the TGV train station are exactly between the 2 pairs.
I am not sure you can open the windows. So it may be difficult to make good picture. But the view can bez great.

From what I hear it is a fantastic spotting location. Never been there. I hope to. Especially since I work for the company...





Enjoy!

cheers

The Sofitel CDG Airport is by far the best Hotel to spot. As long as you request a room in the upper floors.
You have a view on most taxiways, CDG T2-T1.
And you're not far away of one of the most popular spot of the airport.
