    The interesting thing about the F-4 dissappearing into the concrete block at 480+mph (propelled by a rocket-sled) is the fact that no part of the aircraft penetrated more than 2" into the block.

    So, a 63` aircraft is now <2" from nose to tail.

    (of course, I would argue that aiming an F-4 at a concrete wall is not a `natural disaster`, but if you were to do so it would, naturally, end in disaster)

    Wind turbine failure:
    -Is it reasonable to design a self-destruct mechanism so, the blades will be thrown at the foot of the tower?

    -What about a "permanent failure state" centrifugal brake, similar to an elevator?

    I remember watching that footage of the jet launched into the reinforced concrete block during a field trip to a nuclear power plant. It was pretty amazing, the wings extend past the block and just keep going, and there`s an imprint of the jet left on the block.

    It wasn`t the Carrera GT that killed them it was poor driving.

    Not all "natural" disasters, but devastating destruction nonetheless.
