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.
