      At the speed they can travel operationaly (1200 mph) it would be out of sight again before you heard it. Landing and takeoff are a different matter.

        I think they are beautiful, but then I'm biased. Watching them display for the first time last year was thrilling after waiting so long.

          Being noisy and ugly comes with the territory. When I was stationed at Tengah/Singapore in the 60's the engine noise caused the beds to chunter across the floor. Coltishall in the 70's wasn't much better.

          Living where I am now, any aircraft noise seems too far away to be a bother.

          Of course, it does help when you can switch off the hearing aids.
          It's not what inspires us that is important, it's where the journey takes us.
