Hi Johannes,
I can't reproduce the crashes when deleting the curves... Your file also seems very complicated. I would just do:
SetFactory("OpenCASCADE");
Geometry.OCCTargetUnit = "M";
v() = ShapeFromFile("wing_fuselage.step");
Box(3) = {-5, -5, -5, 10, 10, 10};
out() = BooleanDifference{ Volume{3}; Delete; }{ Volume{v()}; Delete; };
out() will contain the volume of interest.
