Good Lord, aircraft are hardly strong, you can use a can opener to cut up a Cessna, and larger jets just have chambered walls and a steel capped nose, which coupled with aerodynamics and Bernoulli's principal, allows for flight. And by pressurizing the cabin, an equilibrium of stability and strength is formed when in the higher atmosphere. I like planes...
See, 133, you fail because you looked that info up. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for self-education, but you just look like a jackass trying to one-up someone who is overall more knowledgeable on a subject you're discussing. As for the aluminum you mentioned, wouldn't it cross your mind that perhaps someone's corrugated metal roof is not going to be of the same tensile strength as that of a wing of an Airbus 300 per-say? People can't afford the $300+ sq ft for that material haha
