What happens when a Phantom F4 crashes on a wall at 800 kmph?

Supersonic Phantom F4 aircrafts were manufactured by McDonnell Douglas during the ‘60s, to be used for various purposes by the US military.

In fact, they were the most popular fighters, not only for Americans, but also for all countries that could afford a squadron of these supersonic aircrafts for their military air force.

During an experiment that took place in 1988, safety engineers wanted to test what would happen if this craft crashed on a fixed point, while speeding at 804 kilometers per hour. You can imagine the end result, but you can also see it in the video below.

This video was not made for entertainment, so you will not hear impressive sound effects or loud music. You will however watch the crash itself in slow motion, and confirm for yourselves the total which you would expect.
