Home / 71st FIS / *Cornfield Bomber 580787 [26]

On 2 Feb 1970 a 71st FIS F-106A (S/N 58-0787) entered a flat spin forcing pilot Capt Gary Foust to eject. Un-piloted, the aircraft recovered on its own and miraculously made a gentle belly landing in a snow-covered Montana field. At the time of the incident the tail markings belonged to the 71st FIS out of Malmstrom AFB.
