I noticed that MD-80's (or maybe it was DC-9) are so loud it's almost ridiculous. I would not be surprised if it is as loud or louder as much larger aircraft.

I think the Bae-111 was pretty famous for its noise.
|Quoting MAN2SIN2BKK (Reply 13):|
The Concorde was definitely the loudest,
|Quoting Jorge1812 (Reply 15):|
Most posters in this thread are from America and might never heard a Russion plane departing which is a shame b/c I love that noise.
|Quoting ABQopsHP (Reply 20):|
Im with you guys on the VC-10. The Royal A/F runs one in and out of ABQ every now and then. Holy cow is that thing loud on departure, and uses a lot of runway as well. BA used to bring the Concorde into MCO back in the 80s once in a while. I lived about 5 miles off the end of RWY 35r. I swear it sounded like the darn thing was coming right through my house.

Additionally on the opposite end of the spectrum the quietest plane I've heard is the U-2, but it was landing so not a good judge i guess.
|Quoting AirframeAS (Reply 10):|
727's, 732's and M80's are the loudest...in terms of how much I can feel the vibrations from a very, very good distance....say two or three football fields away.
|Quoting AirIndia (Reply 23):|
I agree with you. I work in a fairly sound proof office very close to DXB Intl. The only time sound is able to penetrate the walls is when a TU-154 takes off.... Those machines are very loud.

The Saturn V launch vehicle made the loudest sound ever known to human ears by a non-catastrophic event. Excluding the Krakatoa eruption or a hydrogen bomb test.
|Quoting CHRISBA777ER (Reply 34):|
Always found the V2500-powered Airbus narrowbodies to be considerably quieter than the CFM-powered birds. Especially on landing.
