Pilots rule of thumb: You can be assured that your landing gear is up and locked if it takes full power with after burner to taxi to the hanger.

Oh, I assure you that it is. I remember when it happened.
The plane was in a flat spin, nothing the pilot tried would get it out of it, but the shock of ejection and the loss of the canopy changed the aerodynamics enough for the plane to break out of it. It then proceeded to fly straight at a very low angle of decent until it landed.
It was reported as being, sort of, an aviation miracle.

I was not aware that it continued to run under full power for all that time on the ground.

Here's the Wikipedia entry.
