Whoop whoop pull up

"A pilot's worst nightmare. Given by the aircraft's TAWS (Terrain Avoidance Warning Syndrome), hearing this means the plane is about to crash into the ground if a decision isn't made."

Supongo que sea dicho en inglés por el operador de la torre de control del aereopuerto al pilota del avión. Pero no encuentro el significado de "Whoop"

Buen domingo.

No, es el avión mismo. Whoop es onomatopeya y representa el sonido de la alarma.
