Invisible Flight is a stage illusion where an assistant is placed into a cannon and then shot towards a box hanging from the stage. After firing the cannon the box is lowered to the stage and opened. Another box is pulled out of the first and opened revealing the assistant safely inside.

A controversy followed when Horace Goldin brought legal proceedings against Gustave Fasola in England. They both continued to perform the illusion and was later featured in the United States by Howard Thurston

The Invisible Flight is related in some ways to the Substitution Trunk.
