Relish The Sound Of a F-4 Engine Start and Takeoff

The sound of J79’s spooling up is an iconic noise that is music to any avgeek’s ears.  It’s a sound rarely heard these days (unless you live in Iran).  So when we came across this video of a startup and takeoff, we knew we had to share it.  Turn up your speakers, put on two forms of hearing protection and enjoy the blast of freedom.

This video was taken by jss747 at the Cleveland Air Show in 2011.
