** The plane is a hundred feet above you so it will take about a tenth a second for the sound to reach you, giving the plane time to travel from dozens of feet away from directly overhead to directly overhead.

'''Virus:''' Helicopters? Try VTOL jet aircraft, dude. And there's no such thing as "light-absorbing paint". It's actually a resin matrix of nanoscopic piezoelectric metacrystals. Active noise-cancellation is civvy technology already used in sound studios, you just need a lassive number of CPU cycles to make it work 3-dimensionally on a whole aircraft. Techno-angelic cloud-computing makes CABAL the most powerful supercomputer in the world, of course, so that's not a problem.\\

* Castellan Ursakar E. Creed's "Tactical Genius" special rule in ''Warhammer40K'' allows him to infiltrate a single unit before the battle (see MirrorScare for how it's supposed to look). MemeticMutation has extended this to entire Baneblade tanks or even ''building-sized Titans'', often through use of BehindAStick.

* In ''TraumaTeam,'' Gabriel Cunningham pulls this when confronted by Ian Holden late in the game, by stepping back off the roof of the hospital and grabbing onto a helicopter's ladder. How he wasn't sliced to ribbons by the propeller is anyone's guess.

* ''[[Creator/SciFiChannel Fact Or Faked Paranormal Files]]'' once showed how improbable this trope is in reality when a UFO video was speculated to actually be a helicopter with a light rig attached to it, but when they tested this themselves they quickly realized that at the highest altitude the chopper could go with the rig still visible they could still clearly hear it from the ground, with the noise level exceeding [=100dB=], which would have been picked up by the camera in addition to the ambient noise (people talking and such) that it ''did'' pick up, and no one on the ground would have mistaken it for anything but a helicopter as a result. Later tests showed that the rig had mostly likely been attached to a silent weather balloon.
