This sound effect is a famous scream sound effect (which can rival the Wilhelm Scream in terms of popularity) and it is best known as the "Howie Scream" (which is named after Howie Long when the scream sound effect was used in his death scene in the film "Broken Arrow"), and it can be found on The Premiere Edition Volume 1, which was made by The Hollywood Edge. It made its debut in "The Ninth Configuration" in 1980.
