This indicates a massive jump to conclusion. The aircraft you
describe have probably entered a stall state and their
aerodynamic surfaces no-longer provide lift..thus they might as
well be rocks and fall to earth the same way.

Another factor is that alot of modern military aircraft designs
are aerodynamically unstable at any speed - if it wasn't for
computers constantly adjusting surfaces and trim X times per
second they might do the rock act too..
