Airbus sound to Boeing


What make the different sound of a A320 to a Boeing 737 takeing off?? The airbus has a hum to it while the boeing screams??? :confused: I have always thought about this.


Dont know for sure, but I am sure it has something to do with different types of engines! :slight_smile:!

The 737-200’s have the older “cigarette” style engines and are MUCH louder than the newer high-bypass style engines that are the norm today.

I do know what you’re talking about though, the 757 in particular has a very odd growl sometimes during takeoff. It’s pretty cool sounding actually.


I have never heard one take off BTV is a small airport :cry: But I know sitting outside on are deck I can sit there and say “Oh there goes a JetBlue 320.” But there hasn’t been a boeing 737 around here for a while only a FedEx 727-200. I wish there were more 737 flights here but airbus is taking over because it is much more quiet.


and again, since Damiross isn’t here…

OUR” deck, not “are” deck

Sorry dude! :smiling_imp:


Umm… I’m the one most often accused of being the grammar/spelling police.


That’s right. JHEM is the resident spell checker. Pika is the resident smart-ass (although we all have such tendencies), and damiross is the bulldog when it comes to retreads (discussions that have already been, well, discussed). I’m not sure where I fit into the equation, but I have my niche somewhere in the middle of this mess. :smiley:

OH yeah, and cfijames is the wise-cracking ungrateful offspring. :wink:


Court jester is open!!! :wink:

Oooooooooo… very insightful!


Now thats just mean.

Partially true, but mean! :wink:

Eat Me!


The truth often hurts! :laughing:



:mrgreen: And PEdoubleNIZZLE likes to post trivial facts just for attention :stuck_out_tongue:


And don’t expect much from me on the weekends. That’s when I get to spend more than just a couple of hours with my girlfriend.

Girlfriend? FlightAware? Correcting grammar?
Gene, I’ll go with the first answer: Girlfriend!


Weekend parole? :laughing:


(Ducking and running!!!)


Yup, James!
