http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gol_Transportes_A%C3%A9reos_Flight_1907 The huge Boeing 737-8EH SFP (c. 40,000 kg) collided with an Embraer Legacy (c. 16,000 kg). The Boeing dissolved in the air and crashed, while the Embraer landed successfully with its seven occupants uninjured. These planes are reputed for their resilience.
