At about 2:25 PM, I heard a loud plane go over me. I have no idea if was out of Glasgow. Anyone in the Glasgow area hear this?

Emirates shouldn't be noisy. I have no info but in the UK, also civil airports, you regularly see especially the VC-10s but also sometimes Nimrods or military/test BAC 1-11s with noisy old RR engines, it must be one of these as I can't think of even 732s or 727s flying to the UK regularly.

nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

I was in the city centre at the time and never heard anything. Where in Glasgow was it?

Most likely to have been Emirates as their 77W was A6-EBN, a three class config, which made a slow climb and right turnout after a runway 05 departure.

Oddly, I heard something like this go off from Luton at about 1pm yesterday. Very old, thunderous roar.. a bit like the old 707 sound.. very odd to hear something like that from Luton - and from what you say, about the flying time from Luton to you too.

There was a Lockhead C-5 Galaxy at GLA when I flew in on Thursday, could have been that? I would be surprised if it was the EK, although big those GE90s are not 'whow' loud.

Quoting Sandyb123 (Reply 8):

If it was a Galaxy, it'd have a piercingly lound squeel from those engines.. I remember those from my days as a kid at RAF Mildenhall.

as a side point, when I was young, probably mid-80's I lived in a village about 15 miles from Mildenhall. One night the whole village was awakened by the sound of one of these Galaxy's going to full throttle.. the kind of sound like it's going to crash/stalling.. The sound was incredible and has remained with me ever since. The village I lived in (Swaffham Prior) wasn't on a normal approach, or even regular flight path. I have always wondered if there was some kind of problem - the village is on a hill, so maybe they were doing some low level practice and got caught out- or whether they just wanted to wake us up.. there were quite a few personell living there at the time.
