* ''VideoGame/BomberCrew''' is a crew management simulator of a British Lancaster bomber. Aside from only having a pilot with no co-pilot or auto-pilot, causing the plane to begin to plunge to the ground whenever he steps away from the controls, it also features the ability of crew to climb ''out on the wing'' to fix damaged engines.

The only American craft are a US Coast Guard chopper and US Air Force F-22s and A-10s, which can't land on carriers. Neither can the Eurofighter or non-navalized Russian MiG-29s. Also present is a French Army Caracal helicopter.

** Also, the origin of the name "Flying Circus" and garish color scheme not just of the Red Baron's plane but ''all'' of the planes in the squadron, was due to a bit of rebellion against authority... an order had come down that aircraft should be camouflaged to disguise their shape/size/configuration etc. but did not specify colors nor that any attempt should be made to have them blend in with the sky or ground (depending on an enemy's vantage point). So as to follow the letter of the order without trying to "hide" the planes (which would be unchivalrous), the bright colors and wild patterns were applied, with no two planes being painted alike. Someone commented that they looked like a circus, and the name was born. The name "Circus" later came to be used by British pilots to refer to any German squadron - in the early {{Biggles}} stories, written by a UsefulNotes/WorldWarI pilot, pilots talk of "so-and-so's circus" having moved in across the lines.

* In ''Anime/VividredOperation'', the F-35 Lightning [=IIs=] shown are carrier launched, meaning they are the Navy C variant. However, they also appear to have an internal gun, which only the Air Force A variant has. They are also seen trying to attack ground targets with [=AMRAAMs=] rather than Harpoon missiles or laser guided bombs. Also, the military tries attacking ground targets with F-22 Raptors, despite the fact that F-22s are not designed for a ground attack role and can only carry GPS-guided bombs[[note]]The F-22 thing is at least more excusable for the fact that the [[YanksWithTanks US Air Force]] has actually used F-22s in the ground attack role, albeit against almost totally undefended ISIS targets[[/note]].

* In ''Literature/TheTomorrowSeries'', the protagonists attack an enemy airbase at one point. The planes are described as being fabric-covered and having visible ribs after they've burned. This would be a bit out of date by 1940, but the novels are (implicitly) set TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture.

* In the "Crazy WorldWarII Weapons" episode of Series/WhiteRabbitProject, Tory says the proposed bat bombs were to be dropped by B-52s, which were only conceived after the war's end, and wouldn't see service until 1955. The plan actually called for B-24s.

* In ''Film/TerminatorSalvation'', the A-10 Thunderbolt, a ground-attack aircraft, is used to engage Terminators in air-to-air combat, and is [[WorfEffect shot down pretty easily]]. This is especially ironic, considering that it's TheDreaded for being the Terminator of airplanes: in RealLife, it's a MightyGlacier that's built around its [[GatlingGood 30mm chain gun]], can carry a lot of ordinance, [[ImplacableMan and is capable of taking massive amounts of punishment due to an absurd amount of titanium armor and still fly]].
