I don't think so; I've crashed into them and whilst I sit there, smouldering away on the tarmac, they happily continue taxiing away as if nothing happened!Jacob Fordham

No they don't have crash detection.However they can overstress and disappear.I've seen them be deleted from descent rates in excess of 9,000 FPM - usually right after FS is startd when they are initialized at their crusie altitude.I've also seen many crash through a runway and disappear - usually one of the aircraft above which survived the descent, or at airports with high terrain and the aircraft dives for the runway.When the AI aircraft hits the runway harder than the gear limits in the contact points section of the aircraft.cfg - it "crashes" and disappears.
