Falling scream

A falling scream is a sound effect used mostly in animation and live action movies when an object falls down with great speed. It is generally described as a long, continuous whistle from the dropping point, which gets louder in mid-flight then dies out at the point of impact. It often demonstrates the Doppler effect.
