People who DO crash test aeroplanes: (PDF) A History of Full-Scale Aircraft and Rotorcraft Crash Testing and Simulation at NASA Langley Research Center

When the Piper plant in Lock Haven flooded, there were Aztecs and Cherokees on the assembly line, that no one would ever accept as airworthy. NASA crashed a bunch of them. Later, a P-Navajo and some Cessnas. Lots of helicopters. Two Lear Fans. A Starship. A Cirrus. A Lancair. It was used to validate it's replacement "
new generation of crash analysis codes have been developed that can accurately simulate the nonlinear, transient dynamic response of airframe structures."
The facility was closed and demolished in 2007, boo.

If anybody wants the information package on Taylor Paper Glass, the material samples, and the information package for the Perigee, send me a Direct Message with an address and I'll mail them to you.
