Put me down for the A345 as well, I find the "buzzsaw" sound is deeper and not a bit more aggressive. Regardless, just watching them both is great, seeing 2 engines on the wing as opposed to just one is pure heaven ....

Quoting EICVD (Reply 2): The second one, dont know why though.
Same here. The first one was a cooler aircraft, cooler airline, cooler place, with nice long scenic views. The only thing I liked better about the second one was the view over the airport from the air, which the first one didn't really have. I don't know why I like the second one better.

The Rollers in both videos sounded fantastic, but I do prefer the first one just because of the scenery.
But these Rollers really sound nice :
Delta L-1011; listen to that distinctive mooing sound on spool-up and the growl of those engines. I know the first video posted by the OP had RB211's, but the older version on the L-1011's sound even better!
Man that L1011 is haulin ass..Must be a light load..I like the first vid..Nothing like a 747-400. There is a vid on airliners of a LH747-400 out of HKG I think. Has some turbulence on the climbout you can see the wing flex is very prominent..I love that Vid.

Quoting 747fan (Reply 21): Its a shame UPS is gonna retire their remaining JT9D-powered 747 classics at the beginning of next year, I will surely miss hearing that awesome sound around SDF.
I am gonna miss those birds as well when they're gone. I love the 747-400s just as much, but the GE CF6s just don't sound the same. No deep groan to them, and they're only half as loud.
Not worth taking my earplugs out for.

Got to say that I like number 1 best. There is certainly something about the hum of an RB211 on takeoff. No other engine does it for me like this!!! It might have something to do with being from Derby too and my loyalty to RR, lol.
Had a lovely flight on a BA 767 yesterday and sat in row 4 so had a lovely view of the engine and listened to that famous sound on take-off
