On May 23, the U.S. Army issued separate requests for “pressurizable” full aircraft fuselages for a Boeing 737-800, Boeing 757 and Boeing 767 for DHS testing.

Evidence of completed destructive testing at the airport is obvious in the form of several sections of a widebody aircraft located near the six fuselages, and at a mid-field test area, an A300 in China Airlines livery with a large portion of its right side structure ripped away forward of the wing. The A300 has several smaller holes in the rear right side of the aircraft ahead of the aft door.
