A rare Saab Draken (N35350) at the Reno Air Races in 2003. Unfortunately
the aircraft spent most of this flight away from the airport on a photo
run. This video does include a nice engine start and finishes with a chute
landing. The aircraft is powered by a Volvo Flygmotor RM 6C built under
license from Rolls-Royce (Avon 300).

C-130 YMC-130H Lockheed Hercules flight test accident crash

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.
