More please! (just discovered this thread, loving it)


For a side bar of fun... semi-unrelated...

My lady friend's kid is in the Army over in the big sand box. He just posted this on his Facebook page. I figured if you like military aircraft you might get a laugh:

All this WWII plane talk, then Netflix has 12 O'Clock High with Gregory Peck. About 10 minutes in they do a gear up landing with a B12! Turns out the one big bombing scene toward the end was actual war bombing footage.

If you have Netflix, they have it online till wednesday. Great old 1949 movie with the real birds... 5 stars

Words do not describe the level of:

Video camera: $425
Remote microphone: $120
Tickets to the airshow: No charge (press pass)
The commentary after the OMFG moment: PRICELESS!



That was AWESOME! Thank you for sharing.

Wow! You started quite the the popular thread SSBUSDRVR! I like it!

As for favorite engine sound: For me, nothing raises the hair on the back of my neck like a good ole' Rolls Royce Merlin. Our Camaro club had an outing to the Air Museum in Everett when they brought their Mustangs out to fly. I went more to get my fix of that rare sound than anything else.
In a related anecdote: Years ago I was inside at work in Auburn,WA, when my ears picked up that familiar sound. My shop was under the local airport's pattern, so I got used to airplane noise. But I knew what this was! I ran outside fully expecting to be rewarded with the sight of a P-51 overhead. What I saw when I got out into the light was even better- and rarer: The unmistakable elliptical wings of a Spitfire roaring down the valley. For a guy like me that was darn near a religious experience!

I was in St. Louis and heard the low rumble of radial engines and a B-17 came into view followed by a Henkel 111 and Ford tri motor from the 1930's. I didn't know till later these planes were in the area on their way to an air show but had a lay over in St. Louis area. Big unexpected surprise.

That's a nice surprise. I spotted a B-17 unexpectedly like that once in Port Angeles, WA. A Heinkel; Wow! Now that's rare! I think the CAF's is the only one flying. (Or used to be.) I got to fly in a Tri-Motor when I was a kid. Awesome experience! (Thanks Dad, wherever you are!)

You took the words right out of my pants.

As soon as it blasted across the screen I thought "Oh Fu...!! I would have filled my shorts!"
I'd have been grinning ear to ear as I waddled to the bathroom to clean up.

The third one? They'd be calling for a crash cart. I'd have had a heart attack.

While not a classic, yet, the A10 is probably my favorite plane.
A10 Design spec: Build a plane around a GAU-8 Avenger rotary canon

Coolest sound in the air (turn up the volume):




And, just to follow along with the above posts, a low flyover (it was at take off but it still counts). Those turbofans sound cool too:
