The whine is generally fan noise and the roar is jet noise or the noise of the airframe itself. It will depend on the type of engine and where you are relative to the aircraft. It is very instructive to listen to an aircraft as it taxis around an airfield apron, and you hear the change of noise type and level as changes its orientation. Gerald Wilson.
