While I'm a huge fan of the DC-10 and 747, nothing tops the buzz saw scream of the mighty first generation Rolls Royce RB211. Turn your volume up to max!

I do miss the L1011's. Used to see them all the time back in the day. I've been on the TWA and Delta jets over 20 years ago and still remember those flights.

In terms of "buzz saw" engines, the 757 comes close to matching that these days.
