The brothers answered that in the commentator audio on the DVD. They originally wanted it be aboard a prop liner, but the movie company wanted a jet, but the brothers still used the sound from a propeller plane, which of course added to the humour.

Sort of like the sound a Piper Cub makes after one of it's three engines sputters and the wings begin fluttering (we ALL know a crash is eminent when THAT happens)  ::loony::

I always figured they used prop sounds becuase they thought it'd be funny...  which is what it sounds like to me from Frank's answer.
