Lieutenant Gary Foust has lost all control of his jet fighter. He has gone into what is known as a “flat spin” – the body of the aircraft rotating repeatedly around its nose. Foust has no choice but to press a few more of the vessel’s controls before hitting one final button — eject. He’s shot out at 15,000 feet above the ground and survives. Even more unbelievable is what happens to his Delta Dart.
