These are Skywalker Sound sound effects of a descending air whistle-like sound that perhaps debuted in Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters. They kind of sound like an old-fashioned (i.e. fire truck) siren sped up in +12 pitch. It shouldn't be confused with Sound Ideas, WHINE, CARTOON - SHELL SCREAMING WHINE DOWN.

Forrest Gump, of course, as well as Bee Movie and The Peanuts Movie are very good sources for these sounds. Regarding The Peanuts Movie, it should NOT be confused with "SHELL SCREAMING WHINE DOWN". There're some similar "mortar whines" in the 2012 version of "Wings" (1927) and may be in Red Tails too.
