I've said a couple times I live right under the flight line of a somewhat busy international airport. I've gotten pretty good at knowing what im
hearing when different planes either come in for a landing or take off.
If you hear a prop plane but its not right about where you Hear it A: it's either small and way past you or it's a medium/big one and its still
Little private jets sound kinda like A-10's with a muffler or something. Same whine noise.
Airliners are pretty loud. I've seen some big grey cargo planes come and go and they are pretty loud too BUT these 2 latest encounters have me
wondering. They just weren't normal.
First one was at night and I heard a doozy of a big jet coming in for a landing. Lotsa lights on it and it just sounded powerful. Not overly loud tho.
Well once she was passed me and I heard her kicking in the reverse thrusters at the airport I noticed another very small prop plane coming in only 30
seconds behind for a landing. Thing is I could barely hear it. Honest to god it sounded more like a weed wacker or a motor scooter then any plane I've
ever heard. Just blinking lights and no landing lights on it either. None that i noticed anyway. Most cesna's and other small planes are very
illuminated I've noticed when landing. This one was dark. I thought maybe it was on a perpendicular path and farther out then I was thinking but as it
went over the trees I could see it was continuing to drop in altitude right on the landing path. I followed it right over the roof and garage light of
the same house every other plane goes over when it lands so I'm thinking it was on the landing path and not further out. Any ideas? Drone?
And just 20 minutes ago something took off on this same flight line headed E to W and banked it Hard N right over my house. It's a cloudy day so I
couldn't see anything but it was heading to the same place I see a lot of guard choppers head. This sucker was so loud I got scared. I dropped
everything and ran outside to try and see but no luck. She was soooo deep. It sounded AND FELT like a giant subwoofer was humming a deep deep bass
tone in the sky. Just unbelievable. Any big jets have very very bassy exhaust?
Anyone every built one of those plane trackers? What were they called? It reads the identity of planes as they go by? One of those would be handy I
reckon. Any website to check takeoffs and landings based on time?
