After landing a role in the movie The Flight of the Phoenix, this legendary aviator ran into some bad luck. While performing a stunt, he crashed and died. The day was July 8th, 1965. Not a lot of people recognize Mantz, but he did accomplish a lot throughout his career. For example, he had landed a role on the movie Air Mail, and also appeared in films like The Wings of Eagles and Twelve O’ Clock High. The accident happened while he was flying over an Arizona desert. As he struck the desert hill, his plane crashed into pieces, and he was killed almost instantly.
