.....While in the midst of an overcast, the Convair collided with the DC-9. The CV-990 lost an outboard portion of its left wing and managed to carry out an emergency landing at Nantes. The DC-9 lost control and crashed.

I am very impressed with the MD11's performance during turbulance.

There once was a B707 over California who got one third (nearly a half) o her starboard wing ripped off and yet made it to the airport, call that tough.
