I was so busy rapidly taking pictures I wasn't conscious of how loud it was. I think we could compare the sound of 2 J-79s in an F-4 to 6 J-93s in the XB-70. The 93 was basically a scaled up 79 with almost double the thrust, say 1.8x. So 3 x engines with 1.8 x thrust each is louder than 5 F-4s in formation takeoff.

A very impressive demo of a 'B'...I think my favorite variant of the F-35 is the 'B' model. Yep.
