A rusted sign indicates the way to the baker's and pastry maker shop in Goussainville-Vieux Pays (old settlement), 20 kms (12 miles) north of Paris, August 21, 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 21, 2013. REUTERS/Charles Platiau (FRANCE - Tags: SOCIETY) less
