Back in the '80s, a lot of my friends flew Metro IIIs for American Eagle. They called them Death Tube, San Antonio Sewer Pipe, or The Screamin' Weenie.

 

A local airline still files these. Screamin' Weenie  made me lol laugh

Those Mitsubishis produced noise way out of proportion to their size! I got some time in a King Air B100, and typical of someone used to PT-6s, I was always a little suspicious of its Garrett Grenade engines.

Nobody beats the Tweet for noise out of proportion to their size!

In reply to Karacticus :

Interesting  concept,   useless in reality.   Scooping anything with that in the kitchen would require another spoon.

I'll be flying on a Beechcraft Super King Air 200 next week. I'm excited. Some of my co-workers? Not so much.

If we're doing pictures of airplanes that make cool noises, this is where I worked for a couple of years. HS 748s up in the Arctic rocking RR Dart engines. I also worked on the 727s you can see in the background.

As much as I welcome the idea, does this make anyone else anxious?
