* ''Anime/ReadOrDie'' has two examples - once in [[Anime/ReadOrDie the original OVA]], where Yomiko's paper airplane takes a nosedive off of a skyscraper because she forgot the tail, and once in [[RODTheTV the TV series]], where a crashing jumbo jet is saved by wrapping it in paper and turning it into a giant bird.

* Played with in ''[[UltimateXMen Ultimate X-Men]]'' where Jean rather sarcastically mentions to Beast that he doesn't have to do mid-air repairs when the plane is functioning fine.
* In ''[[JusticeSocietyOfAmerica JSA Secret Files]]'' #1, Speed Saunders does a mid-air patch job on his hot air balloon after it springs a leak while aloft.

* In ''Videogame/PlanetSide 2'', aircraft will start to plummet and catch on fire when their health is critical. A utility module, the fire suppression system, allows one to restore the vehicle from critical health and regain engine power. Many enterprising pilots have taken advantage of players inheriting the vehicles momentum when bailing by sending the aircraft in a flat spin, ''bailing out'', and repairing it from outside while falling alongside it in a ballistic trajectory, before climbing back in and flying away.

* ''[[LegoAdaptationGame LEGO Star Wars]]: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgFCQoHvNgk Revenge Of The Brick]]'' has a lot of this. Considering it's LEGO. Anakin even manages to make an entire biplane, then a starfighter, '''while floating in space!'''
* ''BlazingAngels'' incorporates a teammate who can "heal" your craft during missions. The game tries to HandWave it by having your character perform the actual repair, while being talked through it by your teammate.
* A large part of the gameplay in ''GunsOfIcarus'', which features Steampunk airships fighting each others in the sky, revolves around repairing various guns and sub-systems and putting out fires (during battles).

* Iron Man gets to repair [[AirborneAircraftCarrier the Hellicarrier]] in ''Film/TheAvengers'' film: restarting a damaged turbine, which becomes increasingly important once another (of the four) is taken out, and increasingly dangerous as he as to bring it up to speed ''inside it.''
