The sounds in the cabin after being pushed back from the gate. This is prior to the main engines starting, the 'engine-like' noise you can hear is the small Auxiliary power unit in the tail of the plane,(a small jet) that runs the generators and aircon before the main engines are going.

    Hi Matthew, I think you are on fairly objective and safe ground with the Auxiliary power plant article at wiki :)

    People always tell me to be careful about wikipedia entries; check them against somewhere else to check whether they are indeed true.

    Great one. As I said in an earlyer private message to you last week, do you have that flight's takeoff? Hadn't got a response from you; I wondered where you had gone!

    Look forward to your reply

    Cheers
