* Occurs in ''TheRightStuff'', when Chuck Yeager is trying to break the sound barrier for the first time. After a lot of crashes that occurred when nearing Mach 1, the ground team mistake the Sonic Boom for an explosion. Then he calls them over the radio.
* In a more comedic example, happens several times in ''AHardDaysNight'' when Music/TheBeatles get where they're supposed to be at the last minute. Only one or two of those were life-threatening. Also subverted once, when everyone starts reacting that way to them arriving in time for the final run-through--except there's only three of them...
* There is also a moment like this near the end of ''GiveMyRegardsToBroadStreet.'' This one wasn't life-threatening either, but it may have been sanity-threatening.

* A variant in StarWarsANewHope: When the heroes are about to be crushed in the trash compactor, C-3PO doesn't lose radio contact with them, but he does mistake their cheering when the compactor stops for screams of pain.

** In ''Series/StargateAtlantis'', during [[StargateAtlantisS02E02TheIntruder one episode]] (where the Stargate crew are battling a sentient computer virus) it happens twice: once when the virus tries to vent the heroes into space as they try to shut down the fighter craft the virus was using to hide in, and once when they had to fight a virus-controlled craft within the corona of a nearby star.

* During the descent phase of Apollo 11, a number of things went wrong that you ''do not want to go wrong'', particularly when you're many thousands of miles from home. First, the communications between the lunar lander ''Eagle'' and Houston kept dropping out. Second, the astronauts were found to be landing long of their intended landing spot by 2-3 miles (though thankfully still within their "landing ellipse"). Third, the lander's computer failed five times during the landing program[[note]]Thankfully, only minor failures that meant a few low-priority tasks got delayed for a few seconds; this was caused by information overload[[/note]]. Fourth, with Neil Armstrong flying manual during the final phase, Houston called up to inform the astronauts that they were running low on fuel, and had only 30 seconds before it became an abort situation[[note]]12 and 14 also got low fuel warnings, though neither cut things as close as 11 did[[/note]]. Then, in rapid succession, comes "Contact light." "Shutdown." "Okay, Engine stop." and then Armstrong's famous "Tranquillity base here, the Eagle has landed." Mission control was so wound up (and surprised by the phrasing - "Tranquillity Base" was a spur-of-the-moment innovation by Armstrong) that [=CapCom=] Charlie Duke couldn't get his words out; "Roger, Twan-- Tranquillity, we copy you on the ground. You got a bunch of guys about to turn blue. We're breathing again. Thanks a lot."

*** The vector-graphics arcade video game ''Lunar Lander'' seems to have been based on this very event, right down to the computer error requiring the player to take manual control[[note]]In the actual Apollo 11 mission, the computer errors didn't actually anything critical, and the manual control at the end was always part of the procedure, though Neil's need to overfly the rock field meant his trajectory was flatter--and used more fuel--than expected.[[/note]].

* In the movie ''WarGames'', the folks at NORAD know that if the sensors are correct, various bases have just been nuked, and the delay before the answer to 'Are you still on?' comes back is pretty long...

* In the film ''{{Apollo 13}}'', the re-entry sequence was played like this. "Odyssey, this is Houston," being spoken over the radio, as everyone looks on in suspense. The [[TruthInTelevision real-life original response]] managed to be even more ironically mundane: "Okay, Joe."
