Last year I fell in love with a silver machine

It's a tupolov tu-142.
It flies with eight contrarotating propellers fitted to four turboprop engines.
These amazing engines propel it to nearly supersonic speeds.
It is the fastest propeller driven aircraft ever to be manufactured.

Not only that, but it's arguably the loudest aircraft ever to be manufactured.
People say It is so loud that submarines often hear it with with their sonars.

I bet it sounds like this
