* ''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.

** 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.

* ''Film/MemphisBelle'': Luke wants to have a go at firing the guns, and succeeds in shooting down a German fighter--which inadvertently crashes into the rookie crew's bomber. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=djIvmaYI9LQ Like this.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/AirCrashInvestigation'': There's also runway collisions (e.g. "Crash of the Century").
* ''Series/UltraSeven'': Alien Kanan would jam plane communications, causing an accident at the beginning of the episode. Furuhashi himself had a close call.


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/SecretWeaponsOverNormandy'': Can be done, although it's very difficult and does almost no damage to either participant.

* ''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.

* Barely averted in ''Film/LeftBehind2014'', where Rayford Steele tries to avoid a jet without its pilots heading straight for his. The only thing that happens is wing damage, as it causes the jet to leak fuel as it's headed back toward New York.

* In Creator/PeterJackson's remake of ''Film/KingKong'', one of the biplanes smashes into another biplane. Possibly justified as Kong did kind of throw the plane at the other one.
