    Does anyone know of a website where I can download sound files of fighter planes? I have no real reason for them I just thought it would sound cool if everytime an e-mail came in my computer roared like a P-51 screaming past:)

    There are cd's available ranging from Jets taxying to take-off, B-17's, Spits, Mossies, 51's, Lanc's.

    I have a couple of these..they also make great ring tones if you have the right software to convert!.

    do a search on the internet and you'll see whats avialable

    Try Googling as follows:

    +".wav" +"P-51"

    That'll bring up several sites with free .wav files you can use. You can also substitute other aircraft types, or something generic like "Fighter Plane". If you aren't familiar with how to Google, the + sign denotes that the following string MUST be in any sites found. The quotation marks indicate the whole string MUST be found (necessary if there are spaces or special characters in your search string). Don't omit it if you have any '-' signs, as the '-' sign indicates that the following characters are not to be included in the search.

    Confusing?

    +mustang +".wav" will bring back both P-51 and Ford Mustang sounds (probably horses, too).

    +mustang +".wav" -Ford -horse will stop most of the sites containing the words "horse" or "Ford" from being returned.

    There's a lot more to searching; don't hesitate to ask us if you need more info on how to search.

    Just so you can compare the sound of an Allison to the sound of the Merlin.
    You may have to turn up the volume a little on the second one.


    Choose one, both, whichever.

    Hey CD! I've learned something there, thanks very much! Being relatively new to the 'net, I'm still learning how to find things easily - I'm getting there, being self-taught, but the info you posted will be very helpful in eliminating unwanted or un-needed items in searches. Thanks again!
    Terry.

    You're welcome, Airframes. I suggest you check out the Advanced Search functions on Google, and then do some experimenting. There's a lot out there, but it's like trying to find books in a library, after an earthquake!

    One caveat: Do expect to get some absolute trash when you search, so read the review of each site before you open it. Some nasty folks will use all sorts of key terms so their sites will be clicked on.

    Also, if you get "stuck" on a site, it's because the site you went to forwarded you to the "sticking" site. Backing up only takes you back to the site that forwards you. Instead, click on the drop-down arrow (if you're using Internet Explorer) in the top left part of the screen, and select a site at least two positions "back".

    Yeah, it is annoying when Google pops up all this strange stuff on searches.

    Long time ago, I worked for GE. I was asked to do a web search on a company GE was thinking of acquiring. At the end of the list of sites my searches returned, I found two that looked to be pure porn. I wondered just why they'd been found. So, I wrote down the site URLs (not going to risk my job by going to a porn site at work!) and checked them out at home.

    It turned out that the name of the company I was searching for was also part of a male porn star's name. The rest of the key words? Well, I went into each web site and dumped the key words. Would you believe EACH one had about 13 PAGES of key words, all in small font? The key words included sports names, Hollywood names, blocks of text from newspaper articles, and a lot of extracts from on-line dictionaries. Just about any search would have returned those sites.

    Remember, too, every time you visit a site, the site owner gets paid by the advertisers whose ads on that site. So, the site owners will do almost anything to lure you to their site.
