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.
