Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
perhaps the problem is that you are physicists

you approach this with a bias that is more appropriate to the birth process of stars than to metallurgical failures due to impact

come on, you're talking about 9 m/sec/sec acceleration versus a 520 mph thrust forward

you're also arguing against the established facts -  no aircraft has sustained this type of damage from an impact of any kind in history. EVER.  and people are questioning it.  doesn't that ring any bells for you?
