View Full Version : What is that noise?

I've been hearing a noise all morning that sounds like when they test jet engines at Tinker. Growing up in MWC, I heard it a lot. Don't remember ever hearing it here in Moore.

Anyone know what it is?

I think it was some of the heavier aircraft practicing touch and go on the air strips. Seems like they do this about every two or three days, but with the quieter aircraft. Sometimes there are a lot of the fighter aircraft (F 16's) that fly in and out, those will rumble the ground around here. It's quiet today.

F-15s have been in town, and have been flying a lot. My son and I were watching them for about an hour yesterday. I will say though if what you heard is very setting off car alarm was most likely the B1 bombers. They are the loudest bird in the inventory out there.

They are actually testing jet engines. There are some that are affixed and run constantly for periods of time. They are periodically revved by the controlling software and that is what you hear. A friend of mine is an engineer at Tinker in an engines group.

I know that they do testing more often than flying around. You can go out to Draper boat ramp & watch the planes fly over and circle around. The F16's are cool....
