Take the BMI crash in 1988 when it was making an emergency landing at East Midlands... the aircraft hit an embankment and the section from the wings to the tail broke off and flipped over crushing everyone in this section. Most survivors......at the front!!!

I once heard that the safest spot was at the restroom!
1. Decelerative forces.
2. Loss of habitable space

.... i dont think anyone would survive a giant explosion, since most of the time, a plane explodes into a big ball of fire when it crashes. I dont think you are safe anywhere on the plane during a crash. As for sitting near the wing...ehh..i dont think so. if a wing full of fuel blows up, i dont think sitting right next to it would be good.
