** Justified in that the Dauntless dive bomber used perforated dive brakes, which ''did'' cause a banshee-like wail from air whistling through the perforations when deployed at speed. Only trouble is, they still didn't sound like a Stuka siren.

* Used at multiple points in the film ''Film/{{Dunkirk}}'', crescendoing to a horrific screech and providing an excellent example of HellIsThatNoise.

The very first teaser trailer relied entirely on it, featuring a pier jammed solid with Tommies... then you hear the rising Stuka scream and they all look up in fear.

In media, when something - usually a plane, but it can be something else - is diving, crashing or otherwise swooping, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ObJV_PITRjA a gradually-rising mechanical scream]] that climaxes in a shrieking crescendo is often applied as a sound effect. This StockSoundEffect originates from a siren (named ''Jericho-Trompete'', or [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast "Jericho Trumpet"]]), which was fitted to [[UsefulNotes/NazisWithGnarlyWeapons German Ju-87 "Stuka" dive-bombers]] in the UsefulNotes/SecondWorldWar as a [[TheCrocIsTicking psychological terror weapon]] designed to inflict panic on enemy ground forces.

A staple of UsefulNotes/SecondWorldWar films, it is by no means restricted to them and can be used in conjunction with anything from a crashing civilian airliner to a wheelchair rolling down a slope at high speed.

* In the announcement trailer for ''Film/{{Dunkirk}}'', the closest we see to combat is a barge full of soldiers ducking when they hear a Stuka.

* Played with in ''Film/JurassicWorld''. Sirens give a RedAlert as pterosaurs swoop down on the packed resort area. They sound more like WW2 air raid sirens than a modern evacuation alarm.

* TIE fighters emit this wail in the ''Film/{{Star Wars}}'' films, although the expanded universe explains it as the natural sound of their engines. Consistently with this theory, they make the noise ''all the time'' - one wonders if TIE pilots experience tinnitus after flying one long enough.

* ''VideoGame/DayOfInfamy'' plays this straight since there are actual Stuka dive bombers available to the Wehrmacht faction which emits this sound as it makes its drop, giving a clear warning to anyone nearby.

* ''Film/{{Midway}}'' has the SBD Dauntlesses making the decisive run on the IJN Carriers making this sound. Of course, the Japanese crew members on the ships are absolutely terrified and panic in an attempt to shoot them down.
