: Correct.  Neither the 757 nor Concorde have crashed.  The only other
: airframe for which this is true, amongst Western jetliners of 100
: seats or more which have entered service, is the Dassault Mercure.

How 'bout the Convair 880? Don't recall any smoking holes with that one..
Also, are you considering the F-100 and the MD-11 as derivatives? I don't 
recall any hull losses on those types.

And yes, with the exception of the Concorde, every Airbus airframe has 
had a hull loss.
