I have this strange sensation every time I hear a plane passing in the distance, overhead. Its that odd sort of stringy, engine sound, which must be hundreds of miles up above you in the air. The sensible part of you knows full well that, if it were closer, the sound would be a completely different type of sound. For a start, the engine would certainly be deafening. An angry sound. From a distance though, it sounds poetic, almost musical. For some reason it always reminds me of the opening few seconds of this track: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XUjAtYQkFm8&feature=related Isn't it odd to imagine these huge, massive engines of planes can create such a peaceful, melancholy sound, which someone can hear, hundreds of miles away....
