Amazing Air Force Story Of The Cornfield Bomber

During a training mission in 1970, pilot Gary Foust lost control of his F-106 fighter jet in a flat spin. After attempting to recover, and failing, Gary was forced to eject.

Just as he ejected from his aircraft, the jet immediately recovered from the spin. Even more shocking, the plane flew off a number of miles away, and landed by itself in a wheat field with very little damage. 

After being repaired at the Air Force base, the jet was returned to service, and Gary had the opportunity to fly the lucky plane again nine years later. 

Now, the F-106 is on display at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force, and this new video covering the story is going viral.

Why non-essential workers exist in the first place is a question for another time. 

Conan wanted to stand in solidarity with the Federal government, so he decided to layoff non-essential workers on his late night program as well.
