Faster than sound
I while back I caught a film halfway thorugh about a test pilot flying really fast planes. Faster than sound maybe, but there was a lot of accidents, and the breakthrough came when someone figured out that after a certain speed the controls were somehow reversed so that the previous pilots had nosedived to earth.
I don't know how this works, and to me this sounds like bad science, but apparently it was a true story or based on a true story.
British, I think. Black and white. 1950s-60s.
What was it?
