"In the end, Professor McGonagall conjured a large fan out of thin air, which she gave to Ernie with instructions to waft Nearly Headless Nick up the stairs. This Ernie did, fanning Nick along like a silent black hovercraft."
— Description[src]

This spell could be used to conjure electric fans out of thin air.[1]


In late 1992, Professor Minerva McGonagall, after having found Nearly Headless Nick petrified at Hogwarts, used this spell to conjure an electric fan, which she then gave to Ernie Macmillan to blow Nick up the stairs to the Hospital Wing, since Nick was a Ghost.[1]
