.....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.

I was rather impressed with a story I heard some time ago about a DC-8 being dunked into some salt water when it ran into trouble. Everyone safely got out, the plane was towed out of the water, and was repaired. That DC-8 then survived a full flying career.

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.
