Paul Mantz


Paul Mantz (1909-1965) was a noted air racing pilot and movie stunt pilot.

Mantz was hired to film the cockpit footage used for the plane crash sequence in "Foreign Correspondent", which was achieved by diving towards the ocean and pulling up at the last possible moment.

During the production of "The Flight of the Phoenix" (1965), which starred James Stewart, Mantz was killed when the plane he was piloting crashed.
