The footage in question dates from the mid-1950s, and has nothing to do with formations, vortices, the "Saber dance," or even the well documented and sometimes fatal instability of the early "small-tail" Huns. Although the footage has appeared in numerous movies and TV shows, to my knowledge it was first used (inappropriately) in the 1958 Robert Wagner-Robert Mitchum F-86 epic, "The Hunters." So obviously it was shot before 1958. The clip was employed--with the all too common Hollywood splice job that changes aircraft types instantly--to represent the control lock-up and fatal crash of the battle-damaged F-86 of Major Corona, the wingman who could not drop tanks and whom Robert Wagner abandoned to pursue a MiG. In fact, the F-100 in the footage was not OEM, but a Hun specially modified for a rocket-assisted zero-launch experiment (very similar to earlier truckbed-launch tests with straight-wing F-84s). The crash was attributed to altered CG, caused by the presence of the still attached rocket booster hardware. (I think it was supposed to be jettisoned, but could not be detached.) In fact, at the beginning of the full clip as used in "The Hunters," the rocket booster is still visible under the rear fuselage. Despite this glaring error, I still highly recommend "The Hunters," which has spectacular air-to-air color photography (not to mention the classic Mitchum line about Russian cigarettes that "taste like Stalin's socks"), and is based on a book by a Korean War F-86 pilot. Its "MiG-15" stand-ins are F-84Fs out of Luke, at least correctly painted PLAAF sky blue. If memory serves, a lot of the movie's air-to-air F-86 "combat" was flown by "Boots" Blesse, one of the top F-86 aces in Korea.
Well the op did describe the scene thusly...
My question is about this "chase 1" F100 crashing at the end of the movie , while stalling close to ground, with full thrust and landing gear down
Seems to be describing this famous piece of file footage, which has been featured in various movies / tv shows over the years...
Tell me, you love your country?
Well, I've just died for it.
