Agreed. So whether it "shouldn't have happened in the first place" isn't relevant to the discussion of survivability of aircraft crashes into walls. Got it...

I did mention upthread that "There are some crashes that are simply not survivable regardless of the seat or restraints." Missile attacks and suicidal crashes into mountainsides generally fall into this category. Crashing into walls does not.

BTW, side impacts into automobiles by trains are occasionally survivable. Much of that survivability depends on the side impact protection systems installed in most vehicles.
