I thought the Tupolev Tu-142 was the loudest airplane in the world until I heard the Pratt & Whitney JT3D orchestra - now I can't decide, had it held any longer I was going to go deaf. 'IAF 401' from 120 Squadron 'Desert Giants' based at Nevatim Airbase, Be'er Sheva passed through BOM on its way to Perth 5 nights ago. The ensuing goosechase for its arrival & subsequent departure culminated tonight as it arrived back from Perth at 1am IST, departing back to homebase after a 3-hour pitstop.

I'm still pretty sure the Tupolev is louder. I removed my ear defenders for a few seconds just after it had started up and I had to put them back on because it was just unbearable. Great shot! I'm glad you didn't wait too long before uploading it like you usually do.

I finally managed to snare something "THE" Sanat Gaba from Bandra couldn't get his hands on, now that's worth showing off surely¿ :-)

Couldn't get or wouldn't get ? I was not ready to take the risk this time and it certainly would've paid off if I did! The aircraft on the other hand is certainly worthy of being shown off regardless of whether someone gets it or not. Also, Vishal Jolapara, That was most catty.

I think BAC 111 is also good competitor with only two engines

After ~30,000 saved photos on my HDD that took ~8.7 GBs of space I'm going to try smth other. For example to keep them here. Easier & faster.
