How Loud Is It Inside Of A Fighter/bomber?

Thu Jul 03, 2003 1:54 pm

I am curious as to how how loud it is for a pilot of an f-18 or a B-1 when it is going at full afterburners. I assume because of weight considerations, that the aircraft is not as soundproofed as a commercial airliner. I am sure some of you either know personally, or know someone who can answer this question. Thanks.

Interesting question.

What you need is a modern version like Roland Beaumont's account of his first flight in a Typhoon (Hawker Typhoon that is and NOT Eurofighter Typhoon). This (like most of his experiences and writing) makes very interesting reading.

Hope you receive an answer or find an article.
