1During the filming of "Catch 22," he flew a single engine plane, with its spinning propeller, into what appeared to be a man standing on a raft, slicing it in half. It was actually a balsa wood dummy. After he struck the dummy, his flight controls went haywire and he found he could not properly steer the craft. He used his trim controls to get the plane back to the airport. When he checked the control surfaces, he found that the dummy's hand had flown up into the rudder, jamming it. He kept that hand in a display case at his Tallmantz Museum.
2He was the pilot of the Beechcraft D-18 plane flown through a billboard in the film, "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. The sign had a Styrofoam backing, a piece of which lodged in the plane's engine when it crashed through with only inches to spare off each wing tip. He made it safely back to Chino Airport.
3Partnered with Paul Mantz, formed "Tallmantz Aviation", providing aircraft, pilots and photography for movies. Mantz was killed flying for the cameras in the original "Flight of the Phoenix".
4Ironically, Tallman broke a leg riding his son's skateboard. Medical error created a situation where the leg ultimately had to be amputated. Even after this, Tallman continued his stunt work.
