It's interesting to see how people throughout NV are affected in different ways by aircraft noise.
Having lived in Fulham I was surprised in the difference how much quieter it was when we moved to Wandsworth (west of the Common).
To be honest I hardly ever notice it - in fact, sitting here I'm straining to hear anything despite a flight heading for Heathrow every minute or so.
However the "Helicopter Corridor" for the route to the Battesea Heliport seems to take them over Wandsworth Bridge as an "turning point" before they lose height to land.
So the Tonsleys, Earlsfield Road, Wandsworth Prison, The Cemetery, Magdalen Road, Springfield etc are right underneath them - and they're only 500ft or so high!
Mind you having said that we only seem to get a handful a day so it's not the end of the world
