The Crusader was not an easy airplane to fly, and often unforgiving in carrier landings where it suffered from yaw instability and the castering nose wheel. Not surprisingly, the mishap rate was relatively high compared to its contemporaries, the A-4 Skyhawk and the F-4 Phantom II. However, the aircraft did possess some amazing capabilities, as proven when several hapless Crusader pilots took off from Da Nang with the wings folded.
