A FedEx plane flies over a former pigeon house, in Goussainville-Vieux Pays, 20 kms (12 miles) north of Paris, August 28, 2013. In 1972 the farming village of 144 homes found itself under the direct flight path of Roissy's Charles de Gaulle Airport when it opened. Residents started to abandon their homes, unable to endure the constant noise of the passenger planes flying overhead. Nowadays, only few families remain living in what has become almost a ghost village. Picture taken August 28, 2013. REUTERS/Charles Platiau (FRANCE - Tags: SOCIETY TRANSPORT) less
