* 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and AA gunners were too occupied dealing with the slow, defenseless Devastator torpedo bombers [[note]] While a little outdated by Midway the Devastator' main problem was the abysmal American torpedoes of the time [[/note]] to notice the Dauntlesses rolling into their dives overhead.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.

* 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.
