Please enjoy the wave safely and responsibly, while taking apporpriate precautions.

 

Older example; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BOAC_Flight_911

 

 

 

 

The aircraft left a debris field 16 km (10 mi) long.[7] Analysis of the location of wreckage allowed the accident investigators to determine that the vertical stabiliser attachment to the fuselage failed first. It left paint marks indicating that it broke off the port side horizontal stabiliser as it departed to the left and down. A short time later, the ventral fin and all four engine pylons failed due to a leftward over-stress, shortly followed by the remainder of the empennage.[8] The aircraft then entered a flat spin, with the forward fuselage section and the outer starboard wing breaking off shortly before impact with the ground.[7][9]
