Why do planes make so much noise while flying?

Report as

Actually, modern planes are only moderately noisy. While debate continues over the best way to reduce noise, one fact is beyond dispute: The Boing 767 family is quiet, and the newest family members, such as the 767-400ER, are the quietest of all. As more and more airports impose noise restrictions, the 767 family's quiet profile and low-ramp noise means lower environmental fees, more flexible flight tracks and happier airport neighbors.

Because they need twin, powerful engines to keep a Boeing 747 in the air...
Which is 95,000 lbs.

most of the noise is from the fan (to cool it off) and the engine (same as a lot of other vehicles) that's why they're so noisy. LOL xD

If the noise bothers you while inflight always asked to be seated away from the wings( where most engines are located) or the front most seating in the cabin class you are traveling.
