When I start my car in park after 10 to 15 minutes the fan goes on and then starts getting faster and faster sounds like a aeroplane also if I start the car and turn the heater on it the fan starts straight away and gets faster and faster
Do you
have the same problem?

That is probably by design because it is likely wired to run the AC compressor when defrost or even heat are requested and the fans are required when the compressor is running.

No even if I don't turn the heater on it the fan starts to accelerate and sounds very loud but doesn't shut off until I turn the car off

Somebody is going to have to use a scan tool to analyze the sensor data to determine if it's a temp sensor of something triggering that.

The first step is to pressure test the cooling system for leaks. You likely have lost coolant and have air pockets now.

The only thing I THINK is that it should be tested thoroughly to determine what is going on. You aren't going to find a magic answer online. The car needs to be troubleshooted "on site" by someone that understands the system.
