** Excluding Foehammer, it seems that the typical Pelican pilot doesn't know ''how'' to land without crashing.
** Much like the case above with Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, despite not always being the captain, most of the ships that the Chief embarks on within the games end up crashing, exploding, being chopped in half by a collapsing portal, etc. About the only exception is the UNSC ''Infinity,'' which is the most powerful ship in the UNSC fleet.

* Whenever we meet Spaceman Spiff in the ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' comics, he's crash landing on some planet. Often it's after being shot down by aliens, but one throwaway panel of a {{Sunday Strip|s}} has him wondering what the "E" on the fuel gauge means.

** There's a ShoutOut to this in the card game ''TabletopGame/CosmicEncounter'', with the "Spiff" race, who have the power to "crash-land" when they lose a battle.
** Also, Calvin rarely pilots his sled or wagon without flying off a ravine or crashing into a tree.

Added DiffLines:

* [[Series/{{Space 1999}} Moonbase Alpha's]] Chief Pilot Alan Carter crashed his Eagle so frequently that if one is wrecked in an episode the fandom tongue-in-cheek refers to it as having been 'Carter-ed.' This is a little unfair as Commander Koenig crashes his just as often.

** In the [[CloneWarsGambit tie-in novels]], Obi-Wan develops some CaptainCrash tendencies, which is lampshaded by Anakin. In three books, he's involved in three separate crashes, although he would (jokingly) protest that he was merely the common denominator rather than the pilot each time.

* In ''GunsmithCats'', Rally Vincent wrecks her car on multiple occasions despite proving her worth in multiple street races. At one point it is even mentioned that she can't get insurance anymore.
