Ring Flight (or Ring Flite or The Flying Ring) is an effect popularized by Al Koran in which a borrowed ring vanishes and is found attached to the performers key ring case.

It was published by Harry Stanley in Al Koran's Professional Presentations (1968) and called the Flying Ring, page 109. It was based on an earlier routine which only vanished the ring.

The earliest form of this effect could be the borrowed ring from one hand onto the selected finger of the other described by Joseph Pinetti in Physical Amusements and Diverting Experiments ( 1784, p. 57)

There have been many marketed versions and routines published over the years.
