50% take-off,25% cruising and 25% landings. Love the whine of those JT turbines on the Mad-dogs as I always pick a rear coach seat(more room and can chat with the FAs @ their discretion). And especially during a 'power-back'(no longer authorized, @ A/A anyway) it's music to my ears and the cruising lulls me to sleep after a coffee w/Bailey's,,mmmm. P.S.never cared for the U.S.A.F. C-130 Hercules, slow climb, noisy, cold, but the C-141 Star-lifter(?) ,that is 1 sweet bird,,so quiet and fast, 8hrs+ from Tachikawa A.F.B.,Japan to Travis A.F.B., Calif. 1966. ,
