Added DiffLines:

* ''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.

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.

* ''Film/EnemyAtTheGates'' has Stukas at the beginning of the film strafing and bombing boats in the Volga River off Stalingrad. Of course, they are making this noise with each run they make.

* TIE fighters emit this wail in the ''Film/{{Star Wars}}'' films.

* TIE fighters emit this wail in the ''Film/{{Star Wars}}'' films.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.

* ''Film/TheGunsOfNavarone''. While the protagonists are fleeing along a dry river bed they're attacked by Stuka dive bombers, with the standard sound effect.
* In ''Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000TheMovie'', right after Dr Meachem's flight to meet Exeter takes off, Tom Servo verbally copies this sound effect to make it sound like the plane is stalling and crashing just off-screen.
* In ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'', this shows up ''twice'' - once when Doctor Scott's wheelchair rolls down a slope in the lab, and once to the falling "Radio Tower" as it plummets to earth along with [[spoiler:the corpses of Rocky and Frankenfurter]].
* Used in Creator/DmitryPuchkov's {{Gag Dub}}s of ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' films, most often during the appearances of the Nazgûl on their flying beasts, replacing the ear-splitting screech. The dubbed dialogue specifically calls them "Messers" (i.e. Messerschmitt). Also appears in the scene with Gandalf and Balrog falling (the one where they first appear falling in a giant cavern with a lake).

** Compounding the fact is that Dauntlesses, especially during the Battle of Midway, were used in conjunction with Torpedo bombers. Not only was this a double-headed strike, but it also meant that the Japanese pilots and AA gunners were too occupied dealing with the slow, defenseless Devastator torpedo bombers [[note]] While a little outdated by Midway the Devastator' main problem was the abysmal American torpedoes of the time [[/note]] to notice the Dauntlesses rolling into their dives overhead. In fact, no one even looked up until they heard the banshee wail of the airbrakes, and by that time, [[OhCrap they realized it was too late...]]

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 [[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.
