I had the privilege of watching a B-1B doing a low level full afterburner pass after a firefight once.

Those are the loudest sons-a-bitches ever made.

Got to see one flying Nap-of-the-Earth in north Nevada once. Gave me wood. It was painted in woodland camo.

I was sitting outside at the club at AUAB when one took off on afterburner and stayed that way until out of sight. It was awesome and I hope whoever needed them was reached in time.

I've stood in this very location for a night takeoff, it's at the runway end near our AMU. It shakes your soul.

My Grandfather worked on the B-1 in the transonic wind tunnel at Rockwell. Love that airplane. I've got some old black and white photos of him around somewhere with small B-1 models set up in the tunnel getting ready for a run.

You would win. I was never so fortunate as to see a Hustler in the air. I understand they used to fly out of Carswell.

Loudest craft i've heard is the Tomcat flying straight out, just a little bit above sea level with full burners.

They don't pull alert, trust me when I say the one you saw was scheduled to take off three hours prior. They are awesome machines in the air, but the biggest piece of shit we have ever fielded when trying to keep them there.

Ah, just behind schedule. Gotcha. I can believe everything you've said without a problem based on conversations with your brethren.

Once upon a time they used to have fly overs at Newport, RI for Naval War College graduations that one rumbled the building I worked in on the base and reverberated throughout Narragansett Bay...made the bad ass fighters before and after seem anemic..

A coworker of mine flew those not too long ago. He said it was a bit unnerving the first time he actually used the low level terrain following radar. He did say that it was an awesome aircraft to fly!

I've seen them at Nellis, at air shows and in Afghanistan... I was a UAV operator and one night I saw a flash of something on my PO's screen (IR at night) and asked him to go back. Zoomed in, focused and there was a Bone with the burners on. Made me feel slow

I have also heard/seen one on the Range in NV. It was loud as fuck, but not as loud as a MiG-27.
