* ''Top Gun'': The plane is seen firing its engines in the opening cinematic, and then you watch your jet take off in first person. You also have to land the thing at the end of the level, much to a generation of player's immense frustration.

* Catapult-assisted carrier launches fit this trope extremely well; no book or encyclopedia entry featuring carrier planes is complete without a money shot of the plane hooked up to a catapult with a flight deck man pointing the plane forward.
