RE: Plane impact design

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Its been a long time, since I have been involved in NRC governed power
plants, but the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, at one time had airplane
impact design criteria for reactor buildings. They may have some URREGS
(Nuclear Regulations) that outline a procedure.

There must be a paper somewhere on the Empire State Building.  In 1946, a
B-24 (?) flying in a fog plowed into the 84th (?) floor of the Empire State
Building.  Still remember seeing the picture of the tail of the plane
sticking out of the building.
