Take a quick look at these pictures: http://www.users.on.net/amy/planes/

There is something surreal about the remains, definitely worthy of being
piled up in an old power station on the south bank of the Thames.

Best wishes,


A quick explanation:

The hangar belongs to the University of Adelaide. A chap outside the
hangar decided to hand-crank his plane (as you've seen on movies where
the propeller is manually pulled to get the engine started). 
Unfortunately, he forgot to chock the wheels beforehand, and the 
plane started moving forwards, into the hangar.  Only one of the 
university's planes was left undamaged.
