Default LOUD

I reside about 6 miles off the departure end of MSP runway 12, so I'm
used to hearing a lot of jet traffic. I've only lived here for 6
months but I quickly adjusted to the noise. It's acutally not that
bad, excepting the venerable DC-9.

Today, though, what looked like an F-18 flew over. Wow. I haven't
seen too many fighters in my life (still have yet to see a "real" air
show). That thing peeled off to the southeast with a thunder that
even the DC-9 in full song can't match.

She was probably climbing through 3 or 4 thousand when I looked up.
Are afterburners used during departure? If not, I can't imagine what
_that_ sounds like.

Cool, Scott. I am glad you got to see it. I wish I would have been airport
watching today, though! I did see it parked at Signature this morning.
Looked like it was painted in desert camo colors. There were about 4 or 5
military trainer jets parked there, too.

you have not heard loud.. until you hear the F/A-22 on departure..

and yes.. A/B is used on every take off until reaching a safe speed and
altitude in the climb profile..

My personal fav is a F-14A chained down in the hi-power runup area at NAS
Qceana in zone 5

if you want loud, try the F-111.

Ahh, but the 'varks are gone and so are the rhinos. :-(

Since the BUFFs and tankers that are left are all turbofans, I'd say the
king of loud these days is the Bone. A full burner TO will rattle windows
and set off alarms for a mile.

SR-71 engine run in the middle of the night on Okinawa. Talk about rock and

Try living in a motel at the end of a SAC runway (for 3 months). Triple buff
takeoffs at 5am, full noise, about 200ft over your head.

even the EF's?

and what about the Australians? are theirs all gone too?

The USAF still has at least one 707 with the old old engines.
Everytime it takes off out of BED there are dozens of noise
complaints. But of course it probably won't match a plane
doing a full burner TO.
