Braniff International Airways BAC-111-203AE, N1553, August 6, 1966.
Hit from behind by a violent wind gust, elevators and rudder torn off.
There's probably more out there, but I don't remember. The point is, that turbulence can destroy an aircraft. It's hard to imagine that wake turbulence from a B747 could cause a similar accident to an A300, but we must wait for the investigation. Remember, they also didn't think a DC-9 could be destroyed by the wake from a DC-10, but it happened May 30, 1972 - Delta DC-9-14, N3305L. We may find something totally new about the A300 after this investigation that can make th airplane safer, or change procedures to make us all safer.
