Strange But True – Crashing Jet Lands Safely With No Pilot [Video]

It takes a lot of nerve to go sailing above the Earth faster than the speed of sound. We have pilots in our United States Air Force that do that every day. They are some of the most skilled pilots in the world. They fly some of the most amazing and sophisticated aircraft ever engineered. However, the ability for a jet to land itself without a pilot has not quite been worked into to the Pentagon’s plans.

This is the story of the Cornfield Bomber. The incident happened in 1970 during a training mission. The pilot, Gary Foust, got caught in a horrible spin during a training exercise. After working valiantly to recover the aircraft he followed his training and ejected. Major Foust assumed that the aircraft would stay in the spin and plummet to the ground. The aircraft did make it to the ground but the story of how it got there and the way it got there is most incredible.
