* On military aircraft with more than one seat the commanding officer will in fact yell "eject" thrice to the other crew member(s) to order them to bail out. This ensures that no single utterance of the order - possibly spoken completely out of context - will result in unnecessary (and expensive) ejections, as well as to ensure the rest of the crew ''will'' eject, no matter what, if they do hear the repeated order.

* Parodied in ''Film/SupermanReturns'' - Superman saves the crashing jumbo jet after freeing the space shuttle it was carrying, and brings the jet down in the middle of a football stadium. After it has safely touched down, we see the pilots dazed in the cockpit, as a mechanical voice warns them to "fly up...fly up...fly up..."[note:The aural warning systems used in modern civil and military aircraft actually provide spoken warnings for a long list of flight conditions. In the cockpit camera videos of a couple fighters that had landing problems and ended up with the pilot punching out as the plane slid to a halt beyond the end of the runway, the TCAS/GPWS/TAWS systems keep babbling about terrain and equipment warnings to an empty cockpit. Given the situation shown in the film, there would be no fewer than a half-dozen warnings being repeated in a list, as well as a cacophony of warning horns and chimes.]
** This device actually [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ground_proximity_warning_system exists]]. It is a radio altimeter that sounds a klaxon in a variety of situations such as excessive height loss rate and terrain proximity (the well known ''TERRAIN! PULL UP!'' warning). It would probably be going berserk in this situation.
