I saw this from SQ333 (CDG - SIN) not long after taking off, so this has to be a French airport, but I don't know the name.

Zaahid,

On your original photo, can you see and tell the runway numbers ?

Cheers
Patrick

Unfortunately no.  

I have a video of the take-off, if it helps to determine the direction the plane was headed toward from CDG.

I have been looking at google maps for over an hour now and found places similar to the airport you spotted yet nothing that is exactly the same. Thus no clue I'm afraid.

The question then is, did you keep the heading of 085 after takeoff?

I you look closer you can see shadows of buildings and looks like aicraft was north of the airfield . IMO it was still heading east or southeast and rwy orientation on ariport depicted was 02/20 or so.

I figured that by 13.00 local you should have been over Krakow (Poland) already. Judging by the shadows you were sitting on the right-hand side of the plane, so the airport was to the south of you. At about 12.47 local you took the photo

Omg. Thank you BuyantUkhaa and Tomskii and everyone single one of you!  

I didn't expect it to be a Czech airport, because it didn't seem too far.

Once again, thank you all very much!  


Happy Holidays!
