* Another inversion are the missiles of some submarines that can be launched while the sub is still submerged. The missile moves a short distance to the surface before bursting out and flying. As rockets can (obviously) work in a vacuum they also, work fine underwater.

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flying_boat Flying Boats]] are airplanes made so they can land on water and swim like ships. Also, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flying_submarine Flying submarines]], with WWII, Cold War, and modern flavors!

* ''{{X-Com}}: Terror From The Deep'' features [=USOs=], Unidentified Submersed Objects (basically, alien submarines), that can fly over land. This is mostly because the game is the original X-Com with new sprites. Oh, and your own flying subs cannot use their weapons unless they're submerged.
** It is at least justified in-game, as the submersibles used by X-Com are equipped with what are essentially underwater jet engines. When they go above water, they're just regular old jet engines.
** Also, the weapons used by X-Com craft are specifically designed for underwater use, such as torpedoes and sonic oscillators (sound travels much slower in air than in water). Gauss cannons should still work, though (better, in fact, since there's no water resistance for the slugs).

* VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}: The Yggdrasil stars as a [[SandIsWater Sand Sub]], that can ''only'' work on sand. Then it gets [[MidSeasonUpgrade fixed]] after [[PersonOfMassDestruction Id]] sinks it. Later it gets the ability to fly.
