Yes. I also have an issue with flexible aluminum wings tearing through steel girders and columns, no matter the velocity. And I am an Architect. A
bullet, a specifically penetration shaped projectile, a .223 for example, can penetrate 3/8" plate steel, but it has to travel over 2000 mph in order
to do that. The leading edge of an airliner wing has the ballistic coefficient of a baseball bat, is a softer material than a steel core penetrator
round, and is traveling at 1/4 the speed. Yes I have an issue indeed.
