UPS heavy coming into Buffalo early this morning had to go around due to a wind sheer. The sound in the cockpit reminds me of my car when you leave the keys in and open the door smiley.....could that be the alarm?

I don't think Dan is referring to the windshear GPWS annunciation, but rather the aural alert from the Low-Level Wind Shear Alert System (LLWAS) installed in the tower.

When he first keys his mic reporting the go-around, that's most likely their windshear warning going off.  I'm not sure what type of aircraft it is though, or its annunciation of the windshear.

I have attached the actual audio clip that my aircraft uses on a windshear warning.  Along with the audio warning, windshear escape guidance is automatically brought up on my PFD/Attitude indicator along with big red letters WINDSHEAR



Upon further review, the warning bell that you hear going off sounds like the GPWS in an airbus.  So, I'll guess that this was an airbus.

It was a Airbus A300F4-600 according to Flight Aware. One of the few heavys that come into KBUF on a daily basis.
