A220 - loud noise when lowering gear?

So, now that things are quieter here in DFW and DL has been flying a decent amount of A220s in, I have noticed some odd noises when planes are landing. I live between 17C and 17R about 5-6 miles north of DFW. It's an odd, loud, somewhat high pitched noise as the plane passes over the house. When I l...
