I'm sorry, but you are mistaken. You take an object moving at 600mph and slam it into a hardened structure and the impact temperature is enough to vaporize steel ... let alone the thin alloys they use in the structure of an aircraft. Watch the mythbusters episode with the rocket sled and car ... a sled moving at 600mph literally vaporized most of the car and the few pieces left over were not really recognizable as part of a vehicle. Even the engine was gone.
