Somewhat Controlled Impact Demo

NASA Dryden Flight Research Center has a gallery of digitized video clips of some experimental and/or historically significant aircraft.

Possibly more unique than the SR-71 (that would be the Blackbird) or Mars Rover is the video of a Controlled Impact Demonstration (pictured right) wherein a Boeing 720 was intentionally crashed in order to record the results.

Is harrowing the right word?
