Your Sunday Morning Turboprop Noise

Airbus A400M:


Hard to tell, but I'm assuming that the A400M uses ailerons for roll control. Getting into high bank angles with spoilers for roll control is a bad thing, as the Air Force has found out.

Sucker is pretty fast too, was skipping along about 420 over the ground in the 30's while the jets were hitting 500-520. Not so bad for a turboprop.
