Jhooper, I couldn't agree more either!
My last flights on a 727 were on NWA's 727s in June 2002 from DTW
We fiancee and I sat on the port side, in the last row.
I videotaped the takoff and landing. I also taped our POWER Pushback and it was not loud. (The people in the row ahead of us could be heard over the din of the engines.)
