Most of them are of two types: CFM56-5A and the IAE V2500. I believe the CFM ones are more common. I agree with the sound you are talking about. It's quite distinct from other aircraft.

The CFM's make that whine. The IAE's sound more like pushing air. Is that a sound???? I don't know. I too can tell when and Airbus is flying overhead.My family thinks I'm nuts cuz anytime a plane flies over I'll tell em what it is, what airline, what kind of engines, airline code, most of the times i can tell em the speed, and altitude.I've been spotting for so long. It just comes to me.

Well then, what is the engine type for the America West A-319?When I see them, they have the distinctive Rolls Royce engine nacelle so I naturally assumed they were RR. Maybe not?Rick
