I lived on Long Lane
until last October and am now just off Thorburn Sq. I never noticed plane noise previously although was only about 1 mile away. I am not sure if this is due to the background volume being much quieter here so that you can actually here the planes, or whether new flight paths have been introduced (I vaguely remember something about new flight paths in the evening standard a while ago). Can you now hear them back in Long Lane
They do definitely start at exactly 6 am on some days; and the size precludes city airport.
