I heard that same plane a few weeks ago and immediately checked flightradar, makes a really distinctive sound

What the original poster heard was an antonov 22 which is a quad propeller aircraft(largest in the world ) which causes the distinctive sound, the last few post are about the antonov 124 which is a turbo fan aircraft and is no louder than an Boeing 747 or airbus a380 but due to its weight at take off climbed very slowly and sounded unusually loud
