There's a thread running in civil av about the remains of 2 crashed DC-9s sitting one on top of the other in a scrapyard. Kind of a lame thread, but one of the replies stated that NW had a DC-9 (N994Z) that consisted of the wings of the Air Canada DC-9 that burned at Cincinnati and the fuselage of the Ozark DC-9 that took out a snow blower on landing at Sioux Falls.

My question to you: Are there any other examples of a modern commercial jet aircraft that consists of structural components from 2 (or more) crashed/severely damaged aircraft? I wasn't aware of any 'til this morning, though I know the military has done this (F-16s and C-130s come to mind)
edit: I'm also curious about who did the surgery on N994Z (NW, Ozark, or McDoug) and any stories that resulted. thanks..
