thanks! if you noticed, i had edited that comment, as i found those pages after i had already posted that question... thanks so much for your
contribution, and i'm starting to think that this crash was legit, for reasons
"ProjectJimmy" has reminded me of:
i didn't even take in the aspect of the high speed velocity and the surface tension of the water, especially the thick swamp water, which has
to equate to something possibly harder than concrete...?
i've seen that Phantom video many times, and i've never really applied that concept to high-speed jet crashes into water :bnghd: - i wish they'd do
a run where they strapped a DC-9 or a 757 to a track and ram it into a wall at 500mph!
all i found right off the bat were these crash tests:
on a minor note, has anyone submitted the idea of having MythBusters test an airliner
crash?? ...what about them "busting" the whole 9/11 incident?...
i wonder if anyone's submitted that...
also, i had the idea that the Everglades could be very deep with soggy bottoms, loosely packed coral, and mud that could suck you underneath - i just
couldn't find a straight answer online, with the exception of that .pdf document
i posted earlier...
adreno, "MythBusters" did a decompression experiment, maybe you've seen it? They found an old DC-9 carcass, sealed it up and rigged a gun
to shoot through a passenger window to see if they could re-create the scene from "Goldfinger", when the bad guy gets sucked out.
I won't give away any spoilers (!), not here.
Since they are so popular, maybe someone could suggest this to them. There are plenty of old 'boneyard' airplanes out in the desert to pick up
fairly cheaply. I think Jamie and 'whats-his-name' (the other guy) would wecome the idea.
