"When Paris-CDG airport opened in 1972, it just so happened that Goussainville-Vieux Pays was exactly under the flightpath. The noise was so unbearable that most people left and today, only a few diehards — including, amazingly, a farmer — now remain. The airport authorities, however, were forced by decree to buy the houses and, theoretically, look after them as the village centre is considered a historical monument, because of the church which dates mostly from 1559."
