[[RealityIsUnrealistic Please remember]] that if you should ever find yourself in an area often bombarded from the sky, that not all projectiles make such a sound. If you are [[{{incoming}} informed that something deadly may land nearby]], you should duck, [[CoconutEffect even if you don't hear the whistle.]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'', the Fat Man's mini-nukes have a bomb whistle sound. If you hear one that wasn't launched by you, chances are great that YouAreAlreadyDead.

* Albert Wesker's Level 3 Ultra Combo in ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' ends with him dropping a bomb on his opponent. It makes the distinctive whistle as it falls, which is impressive as it only falls about ten feet.

* In one round of Swannee-Kazoo on ''Radio/ImSorryIHaventAClue'', the team had to play ''Film/TheDambusters March'' on kazoo and swannee-whistle (slide whistle). For the first half the swannee-whistle played the melody while the kazoo was used to make aeroplane noises, then the kazoo took over, and the swannee played a series of Bomb Whistles.

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'': Parodied; a ManateeGag shows a Japanese man having a terrible day (while in Hiroshima in 1945). After several annoying and inconvenient trifles, we hear a BombWhistle and he looks up, saying "Oh my God..." just before a baboon lands on him and starts attacking.

* One of the pilots flying in to Dien Bien Phu during the French efforts to defeat the Viet Mihn would, so the story goes, drop empty bottles out of the plane because they sounded like falling bombs to the Vietnamese besiegers. Aircrews performing nighttime raids in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII would get up to similar hijinks to harass the enemy.
