* In Creator/DerekRobinson's WW2 black comedy, ''A Piece of Cake'', an RAF pilot spots a German aircraft methodically strafing a road choked with French refugees. The effects of the [=Me110=]'s cannon shells are graphically described. The RAF plane descends to ground level and tries to shoot down the German. it doesn't help that the British pilot is in an unfamiliar American plane, and he discovers he has to angle his guns downwards so as to hit the German. As the German plane is right above a road choked with people, the British pilot's over-shooting adds to the civilian casualties... the unlucky French are being strafed by two aircraft simultaneously.

In RealLife, it's not so simple, as the type of target, the aircraft type, the pilot's experience, and nearby defenses or other targets (such as civilians) in the area, can all come into play. And if the aircraft is fast enough you won't even realize it's attacking until it's done and gone.

** During the IndianaJones stunt show's recreation of the Cairo marketplace fight and truck destruction of Raiders Of The Lost Ark, Indy shoots a thug on a rooftop, allowing him to [[RailingKill fall from his perch]], and takes his MP-40 to blow up the oncoming truck. As the trope suggests, the bullet hits travel up the ground toward the truck, suggesting that Indy started his gunfire [[FridgeLogic at the ground a few feet in front of him]].
