The Bone is the second loudest ship ever! I was a kid when I witnessed the black bird do a fly by at the Cleveland air show! it was unbelievably loud! The bone would land at CLE hopkins for demo's at the cleveland air show at burke lakefront! The air force does not land their equipment there since the thunderbird t-38 took a gull and ditched in lake Erie killing the pilot! So when the bone left CLE at the end of the weekend, it did so in full burner, I could hear the ship for 5 minutes as it climbed out!
Yeah, it's a pretty incredible experience. We were less than 100 feet away from the B-1s at full burner. That airplane may be an albatross (as far as actual performance) but it sure does put on a good show.
