    (My first post here... bit of a test... will try to make it more interesting next time! Its taken me hours to figure out how to post pictures!)

    Myself and Bigbadash visited Goussainville on a Euro road trip a few years back. This little town was abandoned about 40 years ago because of a plane crash, which left residents fleeing their homes and shops due to the crash and too much noise from the planes in general.
    It was a really eerie place, with still a few residents wandering around but the majority of houses being derelict and falling apart. The 2nd photo was a pretty shocking sight...
    It was really interesting to walk around and imagine what it used to be like. There wasn't a lot left behind to see really, but it was just fun to wander and look at the empty shells of houses and try to see what was inside.

    "Goussainville-Vieux Pays was once a farming village north of central Paris but it’s now a ghost town. It was abandoned in 1972 when Charles de Gaulle Airport opened. Goussainville fell right under its flight path. Residents who were able to stand the constant noise of low-flying planes still ended up leaving a year later, when tragedy struck: during the Salon de Bourget airshow, a Soviet plane crashed into the town, crushing multiple houses and a school, killing all six passengers and eight townspeople on the ground."
