Airplane Slammed into a Wall During Takeoff and ... Continued Flying!

Air India Express Boeing 737-800 slammed into a wall at the end of the runway during takeoff and ripped a large part of the undercarriage ... but the pilots didn't notice and continued flying!

NDTV explains:

Miraculously, none of the 136 passengers and crew onboard IX 611, an Air India flight bound for Dubai, were injured though pictures of the jet after it made an emergency landing in Mumbai show severe damage.
A large gash along the belly of the jet and multiple perforations on the engine nacelles and parts of the fuselage clearly indicate that the passengers onboard the jetliner had a miraculous escape.
According to a statement made by Air India Express, ''after flight IX 611 from Trichy to Dubai had taken off from Trichy at about 1.30am today, it was reported by local Airport officials at Trichy, that they have observed that [the] aircraft might have come in contact with the airport perimeter wall.''
