No I haven't heard a B-1, but then again, wasn't the question "what is the loudest plane you have ever heard" ?

I have a wondeful memory of seeing a display team of four Lightnings in the early 1960s at Biggin Hill.

Not only a tad noisy but tail on with afterburners I recall my entire body vibrating.

F-14 Tomcat on the catapult about 30 ft. away on afterburner just before launch. With earplugs and hearing protectors you had to open your mouth to avoid pain. I was later told that opening your mouth allows the shock waves from the noise to equalize in your head. I've also caught the sonic boom from a Tomcat that was 500ft off of the water and about 1500 ft away. It was like getting punched in the stomach. Took your breath away......literally.

For me personally, nothing comes close to the B-1 Lancer, however, the high pitch squeel of the harrier starts to get real annoying as it hovers a couple hundred feet from your head.

I was at Edwards AFB when the B-1 was breaking all those records, I think it was 52 in all, and that bird kept flying by at just under the sound barrier, fully loaded, full burner, after each of the other flying displays and just proved to everyone how much louder it really is than any other fighter.

The funniest thing though, is that the loudest sound I have ever heard, is from a Top Fuel Dragster. Blows the B-1 out of the water.

For me the top 3 would have to be an F-15E or an F-22 with an F-18 pulling up the rear...

The following links won't do the aircraft justice, but they are interesting just the same:


F-22 wav

F-15 wav

F-18 wav

Definitelly Su-27 150 feets above ground and some 400 feets far from me that was turning right at full afterburner and with nozzles turned to my direction. I falled down to the ground!

Some types that I heard till now: MiG-29, Tornado, Harrier, F-15/16/18, An-70, An-225, B747, Mirage 2000, etc.

B-1 hands down for a conventional aircraft. Although I will agree that the continuous squeal of a Harrier as it lands switches from being loud to just being annoying and giving you a headache. Planes set aside, I was at the UT A&M (big US college rivalry for those outside the states) game this past weekend, squadron of Cobras flying overhead at low speed, absolutely defeaning.

I've heard that the Harrier gives you a headache, but i think the TU-160 Blackjack is louder then the B-1 since it has got +-25000 lb more trust on each engine

A Harrier taking off vertically, the loudest thing I have ever heard in my life.

Shook me to the bones.

I was on a boat at an airshow and the Blue Angels flew about 500 feet away from me so close to the water that you could see the shockwave concussions along the water.

Ive never heard it, but I would assume that the Mach 3+ B-70 Valkyrie was the loudest aircraft ever.

QF-4's(drones) are loud, especially compared to the 15's and 22's sent to shoot it down. I was about a quarter of a mile off the end of the runway at Tyndall AFB this summer and when the 22's would launch in thier two or four ship flights, you would have to stop talking until they passed. Same with the 15's and 4's.

The North American XB-70 Valkyrie has only 6xEngines with 31,000lb each
