On the topic of Airframe hull losses, I just read in Airliners last
night that no 747SP hull has ever been lost, and none has been broken
up either.   Boeing only sold 47 SP's, but that probably would still
make it the type with most examples produced and never suffered a
hull loss.   Though China Airlines did come close to losing one near
San Francisco when the flight dipped several miles, causing the plane
to lose half of its horizontal stabilizer.
