** Uncommon, but not unheard of, and was more common in the earlier days of flying. TheOtherWiki lists [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mid-air_collision#List_of_notable_civilian_and_military-civilian_mid-air_collisions over sixty examples]] of so-called "notable" mid-air collisons. It's not a huge number given that they're spread over a 93-year span, but it does happen (and many of the systems that currently exist to prevent them came into effect only after such a collision made it clear they were necessary).

* In ''[[Videogame/MechWarrior MechWarrior Living Legends]]'', collisions between aerospace fighters are almost invariably lethal to both participants, and are often caused when two allied players with NoPeripheralVision clip wings and then smash each other when chasing down a single enemy scout plane. The [[GoodBadBugs magic of the CryEngine physics engine]] means that sometimes clipping wings will launch one player into a vomit-inducing wild spin as they plummet helplessly to the ground.

* This is one of the most embarrassing ways to fail a mission in the ''AceCombat'' games, especially crashing into a bomber you are chasing or a plane you already shot down.

* ''Series/TheSmokingGunPresentsWorldsDumbest'' occasionally provides a {{Downplayed}} example of two skydivers colliding. Each time it happens, the commentators point out that they had the entire damn sky to play around in and shouldn't have collided.

* [[MadScientist Jumba]] actually does this to [[TheDragon Gantu]] at the end of ''Disney/LiloandStitch'' with his spaceship (originally a stolen passenger jet) so that Stitch can rescue Lilo.

** Another Pixar example would be the scene in ''[[WesternAnimation/{{Cars}} Cars 2]]'' where Mater and Finn McMissile are both attempting to flee from Grem and Acer at Tokyo Airport, and in the process one of McMissile's projectiles collides with those of the villains.

* ''VideoGame/FromTheDepths'': With a physics engine that reacts to a crafts shape, thrust, and drag in relation to its center of mass this is not an uncommon occurrence for dog fighting aircraft. Usually it is caused by the damaged craft suddenly losing control and veering into another craft.
