Just when I thought your historical collection cannot get any better you came up with another one of these masterpieces. Thank you for entertainment, please keep them coming. -HGabor

Nice picture, thanks for sharing. However it was your comment that got me thinking - what is the noisiest aircraft ever? Obviously it depends on proximity and where you are standing, (in front, side on, behind) wind direction etc. but are there any standard measures? I would go for a Harrier hovering on full power, it certainly must be the noisiest single engined aircraft ever.

'it appeared as the noisiest aircraft ever'...and the most technically crafted and fastest piece of aviation machinery ever crafted by man!

Thank you, I'll do my best! And it appeared to me (now added) as the noisiest... just to express my personal impression of this great machine.

B-1B on full chat must be up there with the noisiest! Would be interesting to see these correctly ranked though after some formal testing!
