My bet is a large jet plane. The C-17, our largest (?) cargo plane sounds like thunder to me. The smaller, but still very large C-5 has more of a whistle. I wonder if we are flying over in your airspace due to the latest Middle East happenings?
PS I'm a newby, and I don't know how to upload anything yet either.

Hmmm - the 'bear' bomber is a propeller plane isn't it? (The Tupolev Tu-95).
The noise I heard was very loud, but I believe it was too constant to be a propeller sound. It wasn't 'buzzy' sounding, but rather like deep wind and rumbling. (roaring).
I know my friend saw a few F-16's in the area....so I believe it was simply the F-16's using afterburner.
