I can remember living near Stuttgart Germany as an airforce brat in the
mid-late 70's.  I could identify most of the planes going into Echterdingen
(sp?) by the sound alone.  The 727's, 707's,737's, and Airbuses all sounded
different at the time.  I doubt any normal person could do so with consistancy
today.  There is a greater variety of aircraft that are all pretty much the
same.
