Default Boeing 707 Had 3 Engines Severed Mid Flight..

Oh boy...
I had never heard of this.
So many things in this video that *WOULD NOT* happen today, like a captain giving his seat to a passenger?
Even if that passenger was Tex Johnson?

I also didn't know that a Dutch roll could end up so dramatically.
I'd love to hear what the experts have to say!

Enjoy:

The way I heard the story, that barrel roll is why the USAF bought the KC-135

Well, the USAF order was placed a year before Tex did the roll, I doubt it. Airlines, maybe.
