Just a personal observation on the 777. No. 1 made a flyby at a recent airshow at Boeing field. My position was south of the Museum of Flight at the southern edge of the field, about 100 yds from the edge of the main runway. Winds were from the north that day. The airliner approached in dead silence. It was well past the touchdown area before I would hear those engine; it made a pass at about 500 AGL. By the time it was directly in front of me, I couldn't hear it either. Too much crowd noise. That is one *QUIET* aircraft.
