* ''StrikeWitches'' most prominently uses this at the beginning of the second episode of the first season, where we see Sakamoto and the rest of the Akagi's fighters preparing for takeoff.

* ''VideoGame/BattlestationsPacific'' features this both in StockFootage before some campaign misssions, as well as in-game, as it takes quite some time for carrier-based aircraft to launch.

Fixed some misinformation, and added a real life section
The LockAndLoad aspect of the trope isn't TruthInTelevision, unfortunately. The reason being that since planes and fighters are highly sophisticated machines with lots of moving parts and where something as simple as a rag in an intake can cause disaster, there are a lot of requirements and checklists to check before flight can occur. The most technologically advanced military in the world, best case, can go from call to wheels up in... 15 minutes (nevermind actually getting to where they're going). This time can be reduced by leaving the planes on the runway with the engines running and rotating pilots in as they get tired... but this means the planes are constantly using up jet fuel the entire time.

* This trope dates back in anime to what is possibly the oldest surviving anime film, ''Anime/MomotarosSeaEagles''. The cartoon is a RomanAClef of the attack on Pearl Harbor, with cute puppies and monkeys flying the planes. The trope is played straight, as all the planes take off to attack Oahu--uh, "Demon Island." The monkey co-pilot of one particular torpedo bomber falls out of his plane while taxiing and has to run to catch up.

** Also subverted in the first episode. Starbuck is in the tube, prepping for launch when a fuel system malfunction is detected, and her Viper is ejected back onto the flight deck amid much cursing.

* A brief sequence in ''FilmWeWereSoldiers'' when Hal Moore calls a Broken Arrow, diverting all air assets in-theatre to help him: in addition to F-100s and A-6 Intruders taking off from land bases and carriers, there are shots of other aircraft already in-flight breaking off from their missions. Similar in spirit, but with transport Hueys instead of fighters, is the evocative sequence when the first lift leaves the base to go to the Ia Drang valley.

* In ''FilmThirtySecondsOverTokyo,'' pilots on the Doolittle Raid take off from an aircraft carrier in B-25s, something that had never been done before. It led to this exchange between a pilot and co-pilot.
