Broken Planes & Families, and the number 159

Passenger jet breakes in two! How safe are those planes we ride everyday?

http://news.yahoo.com/cheers-screams...185128270.html

GEORGETOWN, Guyana (AP) Officials say a U.S. team is expected soon in the South American nation of Guyana to probe the crash of a Boeing 737 jetliner that all 163 people aboard survived.

Authorities so far have given little idea about the cause of Saturday's crash. The Caribbean Airlines plane ran off the end of a runway at Guyana's main airport and broke in two. About 30 people had to be treated at a local hospital, including the pilot.

The airline is largely owned by the government of Trinidad and Tobago and its prime minister has visited the crash site. Kamla Persad-Bissessar says she is worried that the accident will hurt tourism to the Caribbean, a region that depends heavily on the industry.

Here's how strong these buggers are. This a wing-loading test of a 777. It survives until 154% of maximum design stress.

This all day.

Sorry but I have to say this...

Am I the only one who sees the irony in Frankie starting a thread about the structural integrity of the 737? Jack Bauer called, Frankie, and he would like to have a word with you.

That's what I've been saying, but the collective guarantee of our resident scientists and structural engineers here have guaranteed that it absolutely cannot happen is good enough for me.

There have been planes where part of the roof came off during flight. An Aloha Airlines flight had that happen.

I was expecting it to break close to the fuselage but it actually snapped close to the middle. Those things are very well engineered. Nice vid.
