There is a nice example now in popular culture of the problems of a X-15 in the beginning of the movie "First Man" with Neil Armstrong bouncing off the atmosphere in this rocketship.

The other popular case, the only lost ship was also similar to the bad MCAS system in the Boeing 737max, the pilot forgot to turn off the problematic flight control system, and he didn't see the 90 yaw angle because he turned it off, so he raced straight down, and the control SW kept it that way.
