Feb. 2, 1970, pilot USAF Gary Foust’s F-106 entered an uncontrolled spin and, unable to regain control, he was forced to eject. Much to his surprise  following his exist, the plane righted itself, and gently landed in a snowy field, unpiloted. Aside from minor damage due to the landing gear being up, it was in fine condition, and the engine continued to run until it ran out of fuel. After some quick repairs, it reentered service.
