I would definately have to say the spooling up noise for take-off roll. Esp on M-80s and 727s

Second would be the noise that flaps make when they are extended.

Third would be the hum of the APU right when you board.

I call it the barking-dog, and it has been discussed in tech/ops, but the sequential, short grinding noises from 319s and 320s when taxiing for t/o is always a charmer. The non-seasoned flyer usually has a look of terror when that's happening.

I also miss the 727s flap extension whine...

But, my favorite noise is...the clink of China and the sound of crisp linens being unfolded for supper.

I like hearing the engines spool up too, I also like hearing the elevons move for some reason.

Who could ever forget the howl of the flaps on the BAe-146. You could hear it from the ground as they passed over on approach. You could hear it over the jet noise.

I sure did love the crackle of a straight-pipe turbojet though. What a sound! Could use if for avalanche control.

seated in front of the engines.

(1) The sound of GE engines on a 757 during climb out.

The spool-up of the JT-8D's on a DC-9 or 727 (or 1st gen 737) is kinda nice.

The sound the props of an ATR42 on the ground when the pilots change the prop pitch is interesting, to say the least. Also, I remember quite vividly when flying with the family on a DC-9 (I was 10 at the time) and my sister "freaked out" when the landing gear were extended on approach... Made a groaning sound along with a vibration and a big "thump" then rumbling noise (air drag).

My favorite sounds are:


  • The water pumps on the old 707

  • The squealing of the flaps being
    extended

  • Announcement from the cockpit - "Flight Attendants
    please be seated for arrival..."  Innocent

1. Any engine type spool up for take-off.
2. Reverse thrust applied , mainly on short runways.
3. Flaps deployment and/or extension.

I remember the "regional jet" of my childhood, the Convair CV-440 Metropolitan. It wasn't really the sound of the prop-engines, more the feeling they sent up your spine, a sort of low, humming tremble in the a/c. I'm sure there are ppl here who could tell a lot about the feeling, the noise and so on in old prop-liners.

I always loved the whine of the spinning turbines of the classic 747-100, as well as with the L-1011. The noises the TWA 747s made in the air are as monstrous as the size of the aircraft itself. They were not incredibly loud: they emitted a low-pitched, thunderous wine which became a high-pitched, thunderous howl that made it sound like a propeller spinning inside an aircraft. The TWA L-1011s: those giants were also incredible: made the exact same sound as the TWA 747 classics, except with a little less noise given the fact that it has three engines opposed to the 747's four. Ah, yes...the days of the monster aircraft at St. Louis are over. Even the 767-300 is no longer there since AA cut their services. When TWA Flight 800 exploded, it reminded me of the TWA 747 that flew over a soccer field I was playing on at school, that low-pitched grown which kept rumbling over and over. I wondered to myself, "Could that have been N93119?"

Nothing beats an L1011-1/100 with the 22b's, from the deep resonation it makes on initial start up to the famous "Moo" sound it makes during taxi. Also when you apply power that deep "moo" and the way the sound transitions from thrust reverse to taxi is amazing. Also the noises the GE powered A300B4 makes on approach are weird sounding it makes a pitching up and down sound, and the 320 family has an approach sound that you cant mistake. One last mention the 777 sound it makes that famous "whine" but it sounds as if its not whining as hard but has a unique whoosh sound to it.
