A wing of three is enough to [[ScissorsCutsRock cut down any lone air defense installation]].

* in ''Film/TheFinalCountdown'', Japanese Zeros make repeated strafing runs against a civilian boat. After destroying it, they turn and strafe the survivors in the water, the bullets again making parallel impacts in the water. And one of the civilians.

** 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]].

* In the premiere of ''{{UFO}}'', the motor convoy carrying General Henderson and Commander Straker is attacked by a FlyingSaucer which stafes the nature strips on either side of the road; somehow this crashes their car. The saucer's distinctive high-pitched whine substitutes for the Stuka dive-bombing sound.

* LionsForLambs deserves a mention as an aversion. The battle scenes feature some strafing runs by A-10s, but instead of neat ordered lines of puffs, the result, from the point of view of those on the ground, is of several large grouped explosions, approximating very well the power of a 30mm shell and the disordered pattern in which the shells hit the ground in reality.

** This might be FridgeBrilliance on the part of Tim Burton. Batman hates killing. The machine guns on the Batplane are probably meant to scare not kill and thus are wrongly sighted which the Joker probably anticipated, though wrongly sighted guns would endanger innocent bystanders, which is a [[FridgeHorror fridge trope of an entirely different kind.]]
