Actually its probably not as dangerous as it looks. The fusalog is all metal and the inside is plastic. Where the problems can happen is if the electronics are damanged or if they pilots have lost control of the craft during take off and/or landing.

I would bet the controls run on hydraulics, so that shouldnt be affected. If the weather is otherwise 'good' they could make a visual landing.

Now if you were hit like that while riding a motercycle http://www.macgurus.com/ubb/eek.gif http://macgurus.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Also sail planes are mostly fiberglass and/or composite. These planes can explode when hit like that.
