|Quoting UA772IAD (reply 12):|
I'm confused. Someone mentioned plastic... is that a composite model, or is it metal?
it was so robust that the fuselage structure failed before the wing spar did - which they didn't manage to break in the test!

...like the frozen-chicken-blasted-into-engine test... Great show I say.. but how many frozen chickens will an engine ingest in it's natural life?

I believe when they tested the B767's wing, it was so robust that the fuselage structure failed before the wing spar did - which they didn't manage to break in the test!
|Quoting Stoney (reply 26):|
It would be really cool if they would make highspeed-films (or whatever you call these) of the moments the wing breaks available, that would be cool, seeing frame for frame what happens.
