Flightglobal reported, “Filmed from multiple angles, an empty Boeing 727 has been deliberately crashed in a remote Mexican desert as the centrepiece of a documentary on air safety. The aircraft was piloted to the crash location before the pilot ejected, and the trijet then descended in a level attitude – guided remotely by a chase aircraft – before impacting hard and breaking up. Video footage of the experiment shows the jet’s forward fuselage breaking off before the 727 comes to a halt.”
