View Full Version : Jet engine sounds

We have just been treated to new PC's at work, and we now have sound cards!

Great fun, and I'm now looking for a few sources for jet engine sounds. I've already got Harry's F-104 site,


which has some good ol' J-79 din, anyone know of any other sources? (preferably
LOUD) :p

Do you work for the government? (it's 2005 now)

Worse than the Government......a large global freight company!

I actually feel slightly embarassed about complete anorak status, but somewhere on my mega PC I have the start sequence for a few jets and APUs. I was looking for a sim start from the Vulcan, but the Derwent is to me, just as magical. If anyone wants to hear it, then PM me and I will forward it in a plain brown wrapper.

If your computer can reproduce the sounds of a Vulcan simstart it must be a fearsome machine. A single Olympus was enough to rattle the kidneys. All four cranking up together was the most terrifying experience I ever lived through. Mind you I was usually underneath, removing the ground power connections at the time. Wheel-dancing on a B1A with a stuck simstart lead and the aircraft rolling has to be the ultimate thrill for any young Liney.

I love the Vulcan. Nothing else can ever come near it for sheer fun. Its what got me into this aviation mess in the first place. :ok:
