* ''Film/TheDarkKnight''. When the Joker throws Rachel Dawes out the window of Bruce Wayne's penthouse, Batman leaps after her in a desperate attempt to save her. He grabs hold of Rachel but can't get his batwings deployed properly as he's falling vertically instead of gliding. Fortunately they still slow them enough to absorb the impact with the help of a CarCushion.
