|Quoting ThierryD (Reply 2):|
you can get an actual flight schedule of the show at Le Bourget; the flight program is different every day and depending on the weather, so the only reliable schedule actually only is the one you get at the show.
There's only one place where you can get a bit closer to the runway and that is at the end of the static display but it will be enormously crowded on the public days so better get there very early if e.g. you want photos of planes on the taxiway/runway.
70-200 with a 1.4 converter will not be enough for the flight display of the smaller aircraft but you should do fine for the bigger ones.
