This could go for Darwin awards .
A small private plane carrying Swiss tourists crashed and burst into flames during take off in the countryside near Ragusa, Sicily, on Friday..apparently the airplane took off and did a touch and go knowing there was a wall on the end on the runway. Well when the airplane did its touch and go, it didn't manage to take off high enough to prevent it colliding with the wall, according to the Swiss News. Here is a source taken from an online newspaper.
