Students from Hounslow Heath Infants School play in one of four adobe huts designed to help minimize the noise of aircraft landing at Heathrow airport in London. The playground is directly under the flight path of Heathrow's southern runway and outside play for the children is interrupted every two minutes or so by landing aircraft passing over their heads.
