Reminds me of “The Right Stuff”. Great movie!
didn’t this happen when they were trying to showcase it or something with a few other planes and some collided?
Is he alright?
Judging by the lack of marks around the debris, looks like he was in a flat spin, coming almost straight down.
Looks like it broke apart into 3 pieces before the impact.
Edit: Film from inside the cockpit shows a time lapse of the flight. Apt hits Mach 3 before "inertia coupling" causes a roll that turns into a flat spin. The front end of the plane was an escape pod that separated, but he couldn’t make it out before impact.
Interesting photo! If you like photos like this you might like a collection of unusual historical photos I have put together here on YouTube. Thanks.
His last radio transmission was, “There she goes.” …… What a damn legend!
Levon Helm didn’t give him his stick of Beeman’s
So is there an Apt field,,?
