Just then they heard them, the higher, whining drone, and as they passed at about five thousand feet, Robert Jordan counted fifteen Fiats in echelon of echelons like a wild-goose flight of the V-shaped threes.
И тотчас же послышался тонкий, подвывающий гул, и Роберт Джордан насчитал пятнадцать «фиатов», летевших на высоте пяти тысяч футов, растянувшись клином из маленьких клинышков по три, точно стая диких гусей в полете.

The snap of lasers was lost amid the helis' drone, but the bolts cut a deadly swath through the Sub ranks.
Гул вертолетов заглушил треск лазерных выстрелов, но ряды сабов заметно поредели.

Between 2210 and 0100 hours (10 November), an Israeli drone aircraft violated Lebanese airspace at a medium altitude, entered from above the sea facing Tyre, flew in a circular motion over Tyre, headed to Damour, and circled over Damour.
В период 22 ч. 10 м. — 01 ч. 00 м. (10 ноября) израильский БЛА нарушил воздушное пространство Ливана на средней высоте, вторгнувшись со стороны моря в районе Тира, летал кругами над Тиром, затем проследовал в сторону Дамура и кружил над Дамуром.

On such a day even British workmen scarcely cared to do more then they were obliged, and moved about their business without the drone of talk which whiles away the pangs of labour.
В такой день даже английские рабочие делали только то, что с них требовалось, и на постройке не было слышно обычного гула разговоров, под которые быстрее пробегают часы труда.

My drone kept point across the tunnel, its sonar clicking like the chattering of a thousand tiny teeth, its tether unspooling back to the distant drum in the nexus.
Мои зонд плыл впереди; тысячей крошечных челюстей стучал сонар, с далекой катушки на перекрестке разматывался фал.

A drone of conversation hung in the air, enough that the innkeeper took them into the kitchen when Rand made him understand that they needed to talk to him.
В воздухе висел гул голосов - из-за этого, вероятно, хозяин и провел юношей в кухню, когда Ранд дал ему понять, что им нужно потолковать с ним.

A courier drone flashed almost directly through their formation, easily within engagement range, and they let it pass without a shot.
Почти прямо сквозь их строй пронеслась курьерская ракета. Они не стали по ней стрелять.

And no sooner were all settled, no sooner had the drone of many snorers begun to mingle with and overcome the surf, than Tommy stole from his post with the case of sherry, and dropped it in a quiet cove in a fathom of water.
Едва к шуму прибоя стал примешиваться многоголосый храп, как Томми тихонько ушел со своего поста, захватив ящик с хересом, и утопил его в тихой бухточке глубиной около сажени.

One poem they read over and over; Swinburne's "Triumph of Time," and four lines of it rang in his memory afterward on warm nights when he saw the fireflies among dusky tree trunks and heard the low drone of many frogs.
Одно стихотворение — «Торжество времени» Суинберна — они читали снова и снова, и одно четверостишие из него звучало потом в его памяти всякий раз, когда теплыми летними ночами он видел светляков среди темных деревьев и слышал заунывный хор лягушек.
