Name The Plane Noise!

Thu Jan 20, 2005 7:25 pm

The Beatle's track "Back in the USSR" kicks off with sound of a plane landing - but can anyone either find out or simply identify from the noise what model plane this might be?

I'm looking for the answer too....

p.s any other tracks with airliner noise?  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

It´s a Vickers Viscount. The high pitched whine of the 4 RR dart engines is unforgettabble.

The only other aviation related track I can think of is a track by DJ Tiesto. (The guy who spun the discs at the opening ceremony of the Athens Olympics when the athletes walked in.) Can´t remember the name, but it includes a sample of the MAD airport boarding announcement of an IB flight in English and Spanish. (Hey, just because I´m old eough to remember a Viscount doesn´t mean I only listen to Frank Sinatra!)
