Bingo! Give the man a cigar. Low Airport noise is so important that they will alter thrust and increase drag levels to accommodate. Ever notice at altitude and high speeds you can hear them for a fifty mile arc?

I've done some research into this topic and modified my hovercraft to suit, so I feel that I have first hand experience.

Acoustics is indeed what it is all about.
