The clip rebuke after crash from Space Cowboys (2000)
Is that smoke I smell?
Looks like a fire out by Ridgecrest.
We crashed the X-2.
My 4-million-dollar X-2?
Is that the X-2 you're referring to?
We did break both speed and altitude records, sir.
And beat the free-fall mark by 30,000 feet.
Three planes in ten months. That's bound to be a record too.
The engine failed. The aircraft went in a flat spin. We couldn't recover.
But you made it.
That's the important thing.
And you made it just in time, Frank.
