* There's a story of one poor sap that was just in the wrong place at the wrong time as an [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E-2_Hawkeye E-2 Hawkeye]] approached him from behind. Fellow crew members tried to warn him to the approaching blades of death, but he turned around just in time to get out the "oh" in OhCrap before the Hamilton Standard Propellers turned him into Yellow-Shirt Hamburger. Another E-2 had to be wheeled out to take the place of the one that was scheduled to depart, and flight operations were suspended for an hour as the crew cleaned up the mess, and policed the deck to make sure no part of him could damage another aircraft.

* In ''Series/{{Firefly}}'', [[AntiHero Mal]] kicks a thug into his CoolShip's running turbine after the man threatens to [[WeWillMeetAgain hunt Mal down]] and [[TheLastThingYouEverSee kill him.]] The next thug ''immediately'' agrees to Mal's offered terms.
** Later in the series, said thug's boss comes after them for revenge. Jayne mentions he might sore over having his [[TheDragon Dragon]] thrown into a starship engine.
** He [[ContinuityNod refers back]] to this in a deleted scene from ''[[TheMovie Serenity]]'', where he jokes to [[spoiler: The Operative]] that if the latter doesn't stop [[ContemplateOurNavels pondering philosophical questions]] and get out of the way of ''Serenity'''s [[WeaponizedExhaust take-off]], "you never will find out".

* In ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'', this is the unfortunate fate of Molly Schultz; when she realizes that [[{{Badass}} Michael]] is chasing after her, she (understandably) [[FreakOut freaks out]], and in her panicked attempt to get away runs in front of an active jet engine. The player is then treated to a [[SarcasmMode lovely]] [[{{Gorn}} view]] of [[LudicrousGibs Molly salsa spraying out of the back of the engine.]]

* [[Comicbook/{{X 23}} Wolverine]] narrowly avoids one in the first issue of ''Comicbook/AllNewWolverine''. Laura has Angel drop her onto the fuselage of a drone in-flight, and she begins to slide down towards the prop. Fortunately, she's able to [[BladeBrake stop with her claws]] ''just'' short of falling into it, as even with her HealingFactor such a thing would very likely have been fatal.

* Subverted by Finnish Air Force auxiliary mechanics' "Draken Man's Oath" on Saab J35 Draken. The soon-to-become-mechanic conscript would climb in the air intake scoop on one side, crawl through the air intake channel, swear an oath in front of the turbine inside the fuelage and come out of the scoop at the other side of the airplane. The turbine would naturally ''not'' be running while doing it.
