* On another Bellisario series, ''Series/{{JAG}}'', Harmon "Harm" Rabb more than once climbs into the cockpit of an F-14 Tomcat and also flies F-18s, C-130s (and lands one on an Aircraft Carrier at sea), a stolen Mig 29 in Russia, a Boeing 747 airliner (Oceanic of course), and the Aurora spy plane by the time the series ends. Not to mention his very own Stearman biplane "Sarah". (named after his grandmother and not his co-worker).

* The God Phoenix from ''Anime/ScienceNinjaTeamGatchaman''. Imagine a large bright red and blue plane that can go into space, submerge in water, take off and land vertically, goes supersonic, carries about 30 missiles (before being kaboomed), then several large super missiles (after being rebuilt), and carries 4 secondary vehicles inside it. Most spectacularly of all when the plane's really in a jam, it can transform in to a giant flaming phoenix to escape, although this takes a lot out of the team.[[note]]And the fuel.[[/note]]

* ''TabletopGames/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' and its spinoff game Aeronautica Imperialis have their fair share of these.
** Special mention goes to the Eldar Nightwing, which in the words of one reviewer "looks like something Batman would fly". Its page in Imperial Armor contains a background note on an Eldar squadron that shot down more than sixty Chaos fighters in the course of one campaign. Particularly awesome given that that squadron was four Nightwings strong.
** ''ComicBook/DeffSkwadron'' brings us [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dakkabommalite_1950.jpg da megabomma.]]
* From the ''TabletopGame/YuGiOh'' Trading Card Game comes the [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Phantom_Beast_Plane Phantom Beast Planes]], which is an entire archetype of Cool Planes - namely, these guys!

* In the ''Manga/{{Area 88}}'' manga, Greg realizes that ordinary aircraft won't be effective against Farina's land carrier and immediately orders an A-10 Thunderbolt from [=McCoy=]. At the time the manga was written (early 1980s), the A-10 Thunderbolt was a state of the art aircraft.

** Combined with RuleOfCool and MoreDakka with the VF-25 and its full armor pack (also from ''Frontier''). A few previous Macross fighters had armor packs that when equipped prevented them from transforming back to fighter mode, but the VF-25's not only allows it to transform with the armor pack on, but gives it the largest missile load of any main fighter in the series.
