If you're a sucker for engine sound, I think you'll enjoy this video. It does a great job capturing the sound of 777 engines on takeoff from inside the cabin. Not only is the engine sound fantastic, but I especially like the optical illusion given off by the white paint in the middle of the engine. As the engine revs up, notice how the engine fan blades appear to rotate forward, then backward, then forward, then backward, then forward again! Enjoy!

Nice huh ? Actually the great thing is that you can easily know what engine by listening to it, all 3 engines have a very distinctive note and you simply can't mistake a PW4074 with a GE90-115B (both extremes). Having said that, after all these 777 flights I made, I simply can't decide which engine I prefer to listen spool-up.

Everytime I fly to Malaysia, I book my flight after deciding about the airplane powerplant. I once booked a Kuwait Airways GE90-powered 777 flight from Geneva-Munich-Kuwait-Singapore (not sure if it continued to Singapore though) then a Malaysia Airlines hop to Kuala Lumpur. Just because I wanted to listen to GE90s. In that case the trip was 11 hours longer due to connexions but that was pure pleasure.

Mattnrsa, thanks for that video, you're THE guy !

I do love the sounds of the 777 and find it very cool how all 3 different engines sound completely different!
The RRs tho are my favorite! with that great whine that goes on!

What a fantastic sound those 2 huge engines make! The spool-up sound is pretty cool, but even better is the distinctive low-pitched sound at takeoff thrust!  bigthumbsup

Wow, the GE-90 made the RR Trent look like a hairdryer. The 777 sure makes a great sound, but nothing beats the A340, especially the A346. Do videos taken outside count?

As my signature says

"the ambient sound of the a 777 engine idling"


There is nothing quite like the sound particulary on an SQ 773

Gotta love the GE90 sound. Looks like that was filmed at Islamabad. Check out this video of a B747 classic taking off from the same runway:

Love the sound of those B747 classic GE CF6-50E2s. Not many videos of them around.

I recently took a flight on a P&W 777, and A/C engines made the cabin vibrate like the back end of a MCI D series buses. This was just during the taxi.

Love the 777 sounds, have flown in it many times with many different carriers.
Yes, it does tend to get quite noisy inside the cabin on takeoff, however once settled in flight, I find the noise level quite acceptable.
Speaking of airliner sounds though, it is hard to beat the old school, especially the screaming and sooty 707's!...WOW!...they really were ear splitting, especially the early turbo jets.
I flew in a lot of 707's in the 60's and early 70's (showing my age here!!  Smile) and even the noise level inside the cabins were quite something!!

The 777 and A 349 do sound great.

But how about the 757?



Lastly, besides 777 757 and 340 sounds, there is the sound of Olympus Big grin

Great post. It's a nice treat away from those fuel, merger, and delay posts. Yay for engine sounds.

 checkmark  Well said!
You can't have a thread about aircraft engine sounds without including a few videos showcasing the wonderful (and noisy) sound of the P&W JT3D:

Listen to the whine of the fan/compressor! Kinda reminds me of a JT8D's sound.

Crank up the volume when this 707 does the go-around, unmistakeable JT3D fan/compressor whine and exhaust roar!  bigthumbsup

Another fantastic sounding engine is the RR RB211, particularly the earlier -22 and -524 versions that were used on the L-1011 and 747 classic:

Delta L-1011 Tristar departing TPA for ATL. Of note is the famous RB211 "moo" during spool-up and the distinctive fan growl at takeoff power.  bigthumbsup 
The JT9D's on the 747 classic also sound fantastic:

Fast forward to the end of the video when the space shuttle-carrying 747-100 departs, accompanied by the unmistakable groan of the JT9D's (and a big dust cloud).
