I saw that several months back on TV,  Pretty impressive to see everything that went in to all the data collection, setting up the remote control after everyone parachuted out, etc.  Well worth the look

An interesting tidbit regarding the test. They were hoping for a more complete brake up of the fuselage to gather more complete survivability data. The old trusty girl held herself together better than anticipated though LOL! Only 1 break just aft of the cockpit with both engines still screaming for a considerable time after the crash.
