Dingo Pictures' Dinosaur Adventure uses a sci-fi-sounding variation of this when Tio falls off the cliff, followed by the company's signature "DUNNNN!" Scare Chord when he hits ground. v) A metal cylinder 30 in. or 26 in. long (according to type), 5·8 in. diameter, with the lower half painted red and top half yellow. The reason was- some bombs were equipped with whistles! The reason behind attaching whistles on bombs was to weaken the enemy morale & to scare people. It was another way of saying, “ We are coming & you are going to die!“ Some historians and soldiers argue that whistling is a warning to civilians about the danger ahead , so they may have time to cover up or run away, but the theory collapses when you look. into the physical aspect of such sounds. It is almost impossible to tell which direction the bomb came from by the whistling sound, so it can be pointed straight at you, or you can land 120 meters away. Moreover, the bomb's flight time will be relatively short, so even if you hear the whistling sound of a bomb falling, you will have very little time to react or flee immediately. But I can tell you - nobody who has ever heard that whistling noise will ever forget it. I am nearly 81, and I was 8 at the time, and I can remember it all too well.

iii) A flare with a casing of about the same size as (ii) but without tail fins and with "MARK 50/F/A" or "MARK C 50FA" stencilled in yellow, green or red lengthwise on the body. It would appear that the colour of the stencilled marking indicates the burning colour of the flare composition. The Boomer artillery strikes in Fallout: New Vegas, largely so the player can know to get to cover. Additionally Tiny Tots Mini Nukes launched by a Fat Man have a distinct whine to them, similar to Boomer artillery, which is why they have a face of a tiny tot screaming on them.All such balloons, both British and German, are liable to leak, in which case they may come to the ground still partially filled with hydrogen. Just before Christmas in 1943, We heard a strange sound in the sky, and looking out saw a strange aircraft flying very fast low overhead with a long tail of flames coming from an engine mounted on it's tail. The noise was a like a demented rasping motorcycle. These optional gadgets were like organ pipes and sounded like them, plus the acoustic effects the question explains. But the sound as such may also be produced just by the stabiliser fins alone. When the organ pipes are fitted, this is called a screaming bomb.

i) The 4 lb. smoke bomb, usually dropped in the small bomb container holding 42 bombs, is a small metal cylinder 7·8 in. long and 3·7 in. diameter with a bakelite dome and is painted light green. iv) Anti-personnel bombs are of three types. The anti-personnel bomb illustrated in Figure 3 is known as the "SD I" and weighs about I kg. It is pear-shaped, having a maximum diameter of 2 in. tapering to 1⅜ in. at the nose, and is 6¾ in. long overall. It has six or eight light metal fins, each ½ in. wide and 1¼ in. long, mounted on a tubular frame 1 in. diameter, the rear end of the fins being supported by a circular band ½ in. or ¾ in. wide and 2 in. diameter. A smaller pattern, thought to be of French origin, weighs approximately ½ kg. and is 6 in. long overall. Both sizes may be painted yellow or dark green and are fitted with an impact type fuse. (SD½.)Instead of the usual marking AZ 8312, the plug is stamped AZ 1.3 A or AZ (1.3) A. Specimens of this type have been found painted ​yellow-green all over. The type may also be combined with an explosive charge in the tail end. In Star Ocean: The Second Story Chisato has a move that calls in an airstrike that drops bombs on an area of the combat screen complete with Bomb Whistles. The fact she can do this deep UNDERGROUND makes the bomb whistles the least head scratcher. The German balloon measures about 4 ft. long when deflated and weighs from 1 to 2 lb. The Germans have also used balloons of French manufacture, similar in construction to the British type. The distinguishing features mentioned above may, therefore, not always be present. One of the pilots flying in to Dien Bien Phu during the French efforts to defeat the Viet Minh would, so the story goes, drop empty bottles out of the plane because they sounded like falling bombs to the Vietnamese besiegers. Aircrews performing nighttime raids in World War II would get up to similar hijinks to harass the enemy.

Albert Wesker's Level 3 Ultra Combo in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 ends with him dropping a bomb on his opponent. It makes the distinctive whistle as it falls, which is impressive as it only falls about ten feet. The 5·5 in. flare is similar in appearance to the 4·5 in. flare but weighs 41 lb. and is 48 in. long by 5·5 in. in diameter. The normal American flare has a blue-coloured bomb-shaped case 50 in. long, 8 in. diameter, and weighs approximately 53 lb. when filled. It has four fins attached to the body. When found, some or all of the candles are likely to be burnt down to a short stump, and will be attached to the housing of the igniter unit, an aluminium pressing resembling a saucepan 5 in. deep (see Figure 57).

Incendiary bombs with the explosive charge in the nose plug irrespective of whether the nose plug is electron or steel are known as type B; viz., B 1 EZ–B and B 1.3 EZ–B. These were at first marked by a red painted B on the flat of the nose; a later marking is ZB or B stamped on the nose. (See also the markings given on the I.B.E.N. and I.B.S.E.N. in Figures 12 and 13.) Scorched Earth has several option settings for this. It can avert the trope, play it straight, or invert it (with a whistle that ascends in pitch as the bomb falls). I wrote about my father evacuating my mother, brother and sister and I to Larkhill, to get us away from the London blitz and the battle of britain, which was now in full spate. The best example in case of sound waves is a change in pitch of an ambulance/police siren passing by. And the best example in case of light waves is the redshift seen by the astronomers.

Overall length (including the overhang of, propulsion unit)—25 ft. 4 in. Thomas Pynchon’s masterful World War II novel, Gravity’s Rainbow, begins with one of the most memorable lines in literature— A screaming comes across the sky.It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now. It is too late. The SD 2 bomb when unexploded may be highly sensitive and ​ must on no account be touched or subjected to the slightest vibration.

iv) Another small type enclosed in an alloy casing about 1 ft. 6 in.long and 3½ in. diameter, with a sheet steel cap at the upper end, and stamped in yellow or green lettering: "70 Eisfeld Dez" 1937 (see Figure 59). The Germans designed their bombs with a special whistle that would make that screaming cry as they fell towards the cities below. Typically, a metal object with sharp edges, like a bomb would make a small noise “hissing” sound as it fell through the air, unless it happened to exceed the sound barrier (343 meters per second), which would result in a sonic boom. However, by designing bombs that had a whistle-like attachment, the Germans were utilizing psychological warfare as much as physical warfare. c) attached by a jubilee clip round the body of the bomb to a shallow dark green cylindrical canister, in which case the overall dimensions of the bomb and canister are about 7 in. long by 3 in. diameter. Any of the devices described below may be attached to barrage balloons and, when these break loose and are found on the ground, care should be taken not to touch either the flying cable or the devices attached to it. The police should be informed immediately. Peter - If the missile could fall under gravity further, accelerating all time, after falling about 5,000 metres it would reach the speed of sound and would then emit a sonic bomb, just as supersonic aircraft do when then fly at speeds greater than the speed of sound.
