Big version: Width: 614 Height: 410 File size: 55kb



I would say without a doubt that the concorde is the loudest western aircraft, however i have never seen one in real life but i would bet that the Tupolev tu-160 is probably the loudest plane in service. The tu-160 also has four of the most powerfull afterburning engines ever made. Similar in looks to the b-1b it is much larger than the lancer and produces 60,000lbs. of thrust per engine in afterburner! Thats twice the power of a b-1b.

I can't remember an airplane built in the west looking like it was copied from a Soviet design, but you can't say the reverse is true.

Well this isn't a jet engine but the Black Clawson number 4 paper machine in the Newton Falls Paper Mill was a noisy son of a bitch that started me down the road to tinnitus and hearing loss. You could walk around inside it on catwalks while it was running sheet at 3,600 feet per minute.

Pictures of the mill somewhere around here, I was a millhand back in the seventies there.

The twin tail fighter concept was created by the russians with the Mig-25(also VERY loud!) followed by the american F-15 wich looked a lot like the Mig 25. The sweep wing medium bomber design also came out of Russia first with the Tu-22m wich flew 3 years before the B-1A.

Do ya really think we copied those two designs, besides the Tu-22 in any form doesn't even come close to looking like a B-1 in either model.

About the only thing the Mig 25 can do better than the F-15 is go faster, and burn fuel. I always thought that the Mig 25 looked similar to the A-5 Vigilante, but maybe I'm biased.

To be technically correct, the F-14A was the first western twin tail fighter design, post Mig-25, not the F-15. The first western fighter designed with twin tails was the Lockheed YF-12A which was developed as an off-shoot of the A-12 and first flew a full two years before the Mig-25. Taking this info into account the Russians did not create the twin tail fighter concept.

Maybe not a lot of people will agree with that but the EJ-200 from the Typhoon is bloody loud at full afterburner takeoff.On Airshows i have been, people almost scared. Much louder then any other fighters i know.

Actually the twin tail aircraft dates back a lot earlier than the P-38 which was probably one of the first fighters with twin vertical tails.

I figured that we are talking about the modern jet fighter in terms of twin tails but the actual idea is very old.

A few earlier examples come to mind that pre-date the P-38:

Sikorsky S-34 (1926)



Sikorsky S-38 (1928)



Erco Ercoupe (1937)

The F/A-18 Hornet's GE F404/F414's may be some of the loudest engines in service in the United States, but they aren't the reigning king of noise. That throne belongs to the afterburning GE F101's in the Rockwel B-1B Lancer! I've seen them in action at the Thunder of Louisville airshow (although they weren't there the last 2 years  Sad ) and not only do they rattle me to the bone, but they set off numerous car alarms. Actually, basically all afterburning aircraft at that airshow do what I just mentioned, just the B-1 does it much more! It was always the "must see" aircraft, hopefully it will be back for Thunder '08! (by the way, Thunder is the biggest firework show in North America, with 60,000 shells!).
I present to you the B-1B Lancer bomber...
www.flightlevel350.com/Aircraft_Rock...Air_Force_Aviation_Video-7569.html
Crank up the volume!
My favorite B-1 moment was at Thunder 2003 on an overcast day when it was just starting to clear up (beautiful sunset); it was making its final high speed pass, pulled into a very steep climb, and literally poked a hole in the cloud layer, revealing the pink sky. I was amazed.

Yes, much louder then the F-18C, F-15, Mig-29, Rafale, also Harrier(though its pitch is higher). After all it is Europe's best engine.

I've read a few times now the loudest aircraft was the XB-70.

From my own personal experience, Concorde at takeoff was very memorable, and a Harrier hovering in front of the crowd at an airshow is also ear-splitting I also thought Typhoon and the Super Hornet were also pretty loud when I have seen them perform.

However, none of them come close to a Tornado F.3 whizzing by 30ft over my head in full reheat, especially when I wasn't expecting it

OK, y'all are gonna think I'm crazy, but I'd like to place, of all things, the B2 on the list of very loud planes. It certainly doesn't produce the crackling, ear-splitting noise of a fighter using full afterburner, but I swear, when those things did low (it had to be less than 1000 ft) over Warrensburg, MO, where I was going to school until recently, the noise was simply incredible. Since the B2s are supposedly designed to throw their noise signature around so that it's hard or impossible to hear where it's coming from, it was always hard to spot the planes. But on the rare occasion I spotted one approaching, I was amazed at how silent it was right up until just before it passed overhead, after which it produced a window-rattling, chest thumping, utterly deafening roar that even military jets at airshows can't seem to match for the sheer "size" of the noise.

These events were rare, however. Most of the time, a distant rumble would let me know that a B2 was in the area, and I'd spot a thin black sliver in the complete opposite direction from where the sound seemed to be coming from. Spooky.
