Summary: The effects of ditching a Mustang using models at Farnborough to illustrate the difficulties of doing so. The advice is "don't unless you have to". The Mustang sinks rapidly and the best approach is to pull the stick back when the engine fails and climb to 1000 feet, then bail out. Sobering.
