    Overall any jet (commercial or military) just spooling up for takeoff, though there is no other sound like 3 Rolls-Royce RB211-524B4 turbofans on an L-1011 IMO.

    +1 on that.

    Jeremy might agree with me on this. A MiG-29 with it's burner on. It's just raw and magical. Also the only time I've ever NEEDED earplugs near an airplane.

    The mooing sound of the GE F414 engines spooling up on a super bug.

    With me on engines.. I love the sounds of the DC-10s when they spool up and the roar when they are taking off. same goes for the JT9D and GF6s 747 classics, those are my most favorate sounds of those plane by Best!!! Same for 747s, L-1011s and 757 with the RB11s. in general when it comes to noise of the planes i do love the classics! I always loved feeling the blast and love feeling the vibes from a 727, DC-9s and the Mad dogs. And most curtain, I love hearing the 707s and DC-8s when they are landing, no one can beat the sound of those JT3s when it comes to landing, Also when I hear those GE90s on the 777s spooling up, they sound like an evacuation or Fire alerm going off, love those, And as far as the RR Trents and PW engines, I vote for the buzzing sound of the RRtrents..

    The sound of car alarms being set off by the powerplants of a 747 Classic departing TATL on summer evenings. The memory of which fades with each passing year.

    The buzzsaw-like growl of a classic 747 with old Pratts or the B767-200's.

    Personally I have a LOT of favorite sounds, but this clip from a Howard 500 is hands down my favorite engine startup. If it doesnt sound like a GE90, it should sound like this

    Regards,

    For me, nothing was like hearing the "whooshing" sound of a Concorde on final approach coming towards you - followed by the rocket-like roar as it passed on by towards landing. Didn't even need to look up to know it was the SST arriving. Sadly, not to be heard again.

    just throwing that out there 'cuz as of now none of you has come up with anything nearly as cool! a close second would be this:



    i love when the rotor spins so slowly you can practically count each passing blade!!
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.
