** In early WorldWarTwo, Soviet patroopers [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzMb_ue4aG4 used to cling to the fuselage of an aircraft]]; when it was time to jump they'd slide down the wing and just fall off!

* While at skydiving, the brief antics of skydivers exiting may not count, given that they're generally only there for a few seconds, it is possible to climb ''on top'' of some jump planes and ride them (note that airspeed on jumprun is significantly reduced to allow people to climb out). This is considered to be ridiculously dangerous for everyone involved, given the highly increased chances of a tailstrike killing the jumper and taking down the entire plane.

* While at skydiving, played straight by jumping off a small plane, such as Cessna 172, where the jumper first climbs out the plane, grabs the wing strut and sets himself off on the slipstream, letting go. Such brief antics of skydivers exiting may not count, given that they're generally only there for a few seconds, it is possible to climb ''on top'' of some jump planes and ride them (note that airspeed on jumprun is significantly reduced to allow people to climb out).

** It is customary in modern era for the troopers to ride ''atop'' on their personnel carriesrs instead of inside, especially at combat zone. The inside is reserved for the gear or carrying wounded troopers. The rationale is that if the personnel carrier is hit by an RPG, it becomes a death trap for everyone inside. It is also far easier to jump straight into combat off the top of the vehicle than from inside. Moreover, every man atop the vehicle is another pair of eyes for observation and another rifle for counterstrike. This practice became standard in VietNamWar. Bulletproof vests and kevlar helmets have made this practice safer to the riders than what it used to be in WWII.

Just because the car's locked doesn't mean you can't go along for the ride. Just hop on top of the car, and hold on.

* Done a few times in ''Literature/{{Biggles}}'' with someone riding lying down on the wing of a plane, generally as a method of rescuing someone from enemy territory in a situation where a two-seater plane can't be used (due to lack of room to land or an ObstructiveBureaucrat).

* This trope was popularized in the San Francisco Bay Area under the name "ghost riding the whip", or simply "ghost riding". It happens when the driver exits his moving vehicle, climbs atop, and surfs.
