Leader-1 of the Gobots turns into an F Although a completely unrelated design to the others, the Aerialbot Air Raid also disguises himself as an F The F is featured in the film Air Force One.
The ads were withdrawn when it came to the attention of New Line Cinema that the F, which first flew in , was out of place for a film set in This was problematic for New Line, who had termed the film a "by-the-numbers recreation" and "close to perfect.

The film crew was allowed to film actual Raptors in flight, unlike previous computer-generated appearances, because of the military's support of director Michael Bay.
Toys released for Starscream were replica F Raptor models. These models were reused for other characters in the line, like Thundercracker , Skywarp and Ramjet , that also turned into F Raptors. Although the live-action film Transformers made Starscream the best-known Transformer that turns into an F, there were other F Transformers before it. The plane is the subject of a flight-simulation video game, F Interceptor , which was released by Electronic Arts and Ingram Entertainment for the Sega Mega Drive console in This visualization was a combination of an actual cockpit and CGI for the aircraft in flight.

The Transformers character of the Autobot Breakaway and its redeco the Decepticon Thrust from the Revenge of the Fallen toy both disguise themselves as Fs. Breakaway appears as a playable character in the Revenge of the Fallen video game. Fs are depicted in the film The Avengers.
