Most definitely the IL86 with its Kuznetsov NK86 engines. It has a typical whistle before each engines spools up. I remember cycling everyday to CCU airport early morning and evening during the late 80s to see them take-off either on their way to or from SGN/SIN/BKK etc.

No other airplane's start up has impressed me as much as this Russian beauty.

It has to be the Lockheed L-1011 for me, after hearing a sound clip, I played it over and over!! Lovely sound! Embarrassment

L1011! I loved the sound of those RR engines starting up. It was always a
good feeling.

Any big recioprocating piston engine. Lots of smoking, popping and banging, flames from the exhaust stacks etc.

The Blue Angels when all 6 start their engines. I love how they sort of moan, and gradually become the piercing whistle we all know and love.

I also vote for the L1011. I flew BW's L1011s a few times and was at ANU airport a few other times with the L1011 there and that startup sound is without comparison.

I like 777s with PW engines. It just has the whining whistle before it lights and starts putting out thrust.

I used to listen to the TWA L1011s start from my bedroom at night. The closest thing I've heard is UPS's DC-8s with the CFM engines. They have this really low growl and a big puff of smoke when it gets cold.

F-15s and F-18s sound really cool too. Eagles have this distinct whine and F-18s growl like they're mad as hell  Smile

TriStar for low pitch outside the a/c.
DC-9 for high pitch inside the aircraft (love that shimmering whine!)

While situated in seat 9C, I believe that the start up on a Fairchild-Dornier 328JET is absolutely hideous. The harmonic frequencies made my fillings rattle and my nasal passages felt like they were going through an ultrasonic cleaner. yet after startup they smoothed right out.....Has anybody else experienced this on this aircraft?

Yea I would say it's the Tu-134 and Tu-154 with the Kuznetsov. I also want to see some sound files. Who knows where we could find them?! All I have is a Tu-154 startup sound file which is from my FS2002 but its almost like the real thing.

Gotta go with the L-1011. I mean you could be in a pillbox the next concourse over and feel those RRs fire up. Such a primal gutteral roar!

I like the 737-300 and the 757-200 start up sound. These are the best but i like the start up sounds of all planes.

You are all nuts.

The best startup sound is any large piston radial, The R-1820,1830 or 2800 particularly.

Too bad I have never hear one of those start in person with a Kauffman starter, but on the movies they are the best, no electric starter motor noise at all, just that bang and the engines starts to turn.
