* Parodied in ''Film/SupermanReturns'' - Superman saves the crashing jumbo jet after freeing the space shuttle it was carrying, and brings the jet down in the middle of a football stadium. After it has safely touched down, we see the pilots dazed in the cockpit, as a mechanical voice warns them to "fly up...fly up...fly up..."[note:The aural warning systems used in modern civil and military aircraft actually provide spoken warnings for a long list of flight conditions. In the cockpit camera videos of a couple fighters that had landing problems and ended up with the pilot punching out as the plane slid to a halt beyond the end of the runway, the TCAS/GPWS/TAWS systems keep babbling about terrain and equipment warnings to an empty cockpit. Given the situation shown in the film, there would be no fewer than a half-dozen warnings being repeated in a list, as well as a cacophony of warning horns and chimes.]
** This device actually [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ground_proximity_warning_system exists]]. It is a radio altimeter that sounds a klaxon in a variety of situations such as excessive height loss rate and terrain proximity (the well known ''TERRAIN! PULL UP!'' warning). It would probably be going berserk in this situation.

* The ejection procedure is shown in quite a bit of detail in the first ''Film/BehindEnemyLines'' film, even showing how the crew's legs are automatically drawn back towards their seats to avoid getting caught on any instrumentation when the rockets fire.

* The ejection procedure is shown in quite a bit of detail in the first ''Film/BehindEnemyLines'' film, even showing how the crew's legs are automatically drawn back towards their seats to avoid getting caught on any instrumentation when the rockets fire. This portrayal is deceptively detailed, showing events that happen simultaneously as sequential. Where the ejection sequence in the film takes over 15 seconds per man once the canopy is blown, in reality all of the actions shown occur in only a few seconds.

* BillEngvall tells the tale of how he got to fly with the Thunderbirds, which is the U.S. Air Force's demonstration team. Bill admittedly has a bout of AttentionDeficitOohShiny while being briefed for the flight. His spell is broken when the instructor pilot says, "Okay Bill, when you hear your pilot say ''eject, eject, eject...''"

* The Venom Patrol Craft pilots in ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer3TiberiumWars'' explicitly yell "Eject! Eject! EJECT!" in [[OhCrap an increasingly panicked tone]] as one of their lines upon being shot down. However, it can be rather hard to notice, given that the thing [[MadeofExplodium violently explodes]] at the same time.

* ''{{Titanfall}}'' has your [[HumongousMecha Titan's]] computer say this to you when your Titan takes critical damage or you just decide to eject on your own. In ''VideoGame/{{Titanfal; 2}}'', the voice advises you to either eject or get [[HealingPotion a battery]] when heavily damaged, and [[FreezeFrameBonus for an instant while you eject]] the screen displays often bizarre messages, usually [[ShoutOut quotes from other works of fiction]].
