Horrifyingly, Lieutenant Gary Foust has lost all control of his jet fighter. Now, he finds himself in what is known as a “flat spin,” with the body of the aircraft rotating repeatedly around its nose. Then after trying in vain to get the plane back on track, Foust finds himself with no choice but to hit the eject button – a potentially dangerous decision. And while the pilot miraculously survives the 15,000-foot plunge to the ground below, the fate of his Delta Dart is more astonishing still.
