Most definitely the IL86 with its Kuznetsov NK86 engines. It has a typical whistle before each engines spools up. I remember cycling everyday to CCU airport early morning and evening during the late 80s to see them take-off either on their way to or from SGN/SIN/BKK etc.

No other airplane's start up has impressed me as much as this Russian beauty.

It has to be the Lockheed L-1011 for me, after hearing a sound clip, I played it over and over!! Lovely sound! Embarrassment

L1011! I loved the sound of those RR engines starting up. It was always a
good feeling.

Any big recioprocating piston engine. Lots of smoking, popping and banging, flames from the exhaust stacks etc.

The Blue Angels when all 6 start their engines. I love how they sort of moan, and gradually become the piercing whistle we all know and love.

I also vote for the L1011. I flew BW's L1011s a few times and was at ANU airport a few other times with the L1011 there and that startup sound is without comparison.

And people in the '70s said the RB211s were the cleanest of their day... Yeah sure

The old radials take the cake though! Lots of smoke and noise...

I like 777s with PW engines. It just has the whining whistle before it lights and starts putting out thrust.

I used to listen to the TWA L1011s start from my bedroom at night. The closest thing I've heard is UPS's DC-8s with the CFM engines. They have this really low growl and a big puff of smoke when it gets cold.

F-15s and F-18s sound really cool too. Eagles have this distinct whine and F-18s growl like they're mad as hell  Smile

But I have to say I like any 'older' jet startup, instead of the newer ' dull' silent engines  Big thumbs up

L1011 Tristar without a doubt!!

Airbus_A340



People. They make an airline. www.cathaypacific.com
25 Positive rate : Haha imagine what those pax on that TWA L1011 are thinking! It looks like an engine fire.
26 Fly-K : Any idea where to find some soundfiles? And my vote: L1011, IL86, Tu 154
27 Post contains images Sushka : I say IL86. I love that burst of noise before they start up Second Tu134 nice and loud!
28 Voodoo : TriStar for low pitch outside the a/c. DC-9 for high pitch inside the aircraft (love that shimmering whine!)
29 BoingGoingGone : Hands down it's the L-1011 followed by the DC-9.
30 Post contains images A340600 : L1011 as well, man how could i forget!!!!! Sam
31 Post contains images Jkw777 : Does anyone have any engine startup wavs/mp3's and know the URL's ?
32 Aerobalance : While situated in seat 9C, I believe that the start up on a Fairchild-Dornier 328JET is absolutely hideous. The harmonic frequencies made my fillings
33 Sovietjet : Yea I would say it's the Tu-134 and Tu-154 with the Kuznetsov. I also want to see some sound files. Who knows where we could find them?! All I have is
34 Accidentally : Any radial engine.
35 Srbmod : Gotta go with the L-1011. I mean you could be in a pillbox the next concourse over and feel those RRs fire up. Such a primal gutteral roar!
36 Kevin752 : I like the 737-300 and the 757-200 start up sound. These are the best but i like the start up sounds of all planes.
37 Post contains images Boeingflying31 : I really liked the 757 start up. It felt like it had lots of power...Kind of like a rocket attached to a soda can ....Bad example... -BF31
38 Post contains links and images Cdfmxtech : View Large View MediumPhoto © Johan Ljungdahl
39 Airbus340313x : It has to be an L1011, first start in the morning in one of those typical winter days in YUL.....
40 L-188 : You are all nuts. The best startup sound is any large piston radial, The R-1820,1830 or 2800 particularly. Too bad I have never hear one of those star
41 CanadianNorth : My vote goes for aircraft like the DHC2 Beaver, DC-3, DC-4 and those sort of engines. Nothing but smoke and noise... woohoo! CanadianNorth
42 Voodoo : How many (Kaufman?) starter cartridges were loaded into the average piston engine? (ever see `Flight of the Phoenix'?)
43 BR715-A1-30 : I Like the sound of any jet engine starting up, but my favorite is in my username.... If the damn thing will ever start.
44 Post contains images Myk : The only thing I know, is that I dislike the silent sound of an a/c that want start !
