Top secret Iran hostage rescue mission aircraft
YMC-130H were three modified Lockheed Hercules Aircraft for Top Secret
"Operation Credible Sport", for second Iran hostage crisis rescue attempt.
One of the measures considered for a second hostage rescue attempt in Iran
was a project to develop a "Super STOL" aircraft, to be flown by Combat
Talon crews, that would use a soccer stadium near the US Embassy as an
improvised landing field. Called Credible Sport, the project acquired three
C-130H transports from an airlift unit in late August 1980, one as a test
bed and two for the mission, and modified them on an accelerated basis.
Designated as the XFC-130H, the aircraft were modified by the installation
of 30 rockets in five sets: eight firing forward to stop the aircraft,
eight downward to brake its descent rate, eight rearward for takeoff
assist, four mounted on the wings to stabilize them during takeoff
transition, and two at the rear of the tail to prevent it from striking the
ground because of over-rotation. Other STOL features included a dorsal and
two ventral fins on the rear fuselage, double-slotted flaps and extended
ailerons, a new radome, a tailhook for landing aboard an aircraft carrier,
and Combat Talon avionics, including a TF/TA radar, a defensive
countermeasures suite, and a Doppler radar/GPS tie-in to the aircraft's
inertial navigation system.
Of the three aircraft, only one received full modification. The program
abruptly ended when it crashed during testing on October 29, 1980, and
international events soon after rendered another rescue attempt moot.
X-15A-2 damage after mach 6.7 flight
This 47 second movie clip shows X-15A-2 damage after a mach 6.7 flight.
The X-15 had its share of emergency landings and accidents, but only two
produced serious injuries or death. On Nov. 9, 1962, Jack McKay experienced
an engine failure and landed at Mud Lake, Nev. The landing gear collapsed,
flipping him and the aircraft on its back. Although he recovered from his
injuries sufficiently to fly again, he eventually had to retire because of
them. On Nov. 15, 1967, on Michael Adams seventh flight, he entered a spin
from which he was able to recover but could not bring it out of an inverted
dive because of a technical problem with the adaptive flight control
system. He died in the resultant crash of the X-15 number three.

Train Crashes into Construction Crew's Equipment
Video of a Train colliding with construction equipment that couldn't move
off the tracks in time.
Update, according to @zj360666:
"Just to clarify here,with some reliable information..this happened at mile
105.21, Cascade Subdivision ,Maple Ridge,BC, Canada..the crew held a
rule 42 permit,and had cancelled to permit the west coast express
commuter to travel through the work area at track speed..why the speedswing
operator decided to cross the tracks at that time is a mystery..nobody
died..and the train was on it's way after a couple hours. The fellow that
committed the CRV still remains employed with Canadian Pacific."
