! I looked at many pictures of it! and I saw some people standing below an Air France B747-200! Just about 50 - 70ft above! I wonder what do the people feel at that moment!?
yeah, you're probably thinking of my picture... the main gear bogie was probably no more than 25ft above my head..
Same here, did you notice how the people below never cover their ears?
a couple reasons for that; first of all, on landing the engines are pretty much at idle, so they arent too loud to begin with... second, it moves past you so quickly, it doesnt stay loud very long, you dont really hear it coming towards you because of the way sound travels, its louder behind than in front of the plane...
finally, have you ever gone hunting?? when you target practice, you wear earplugs, the gun is LOUD!! isnt it? of course it is... but when you go hunting, and actually shoot something, you arent wearing earplugs, and you barely will ever notice how loud your gun is... its a rush of adrenaline somewhat.. thats exactly what SXM is like, sound is the last thing your brain is thinking about!!!
