What's the story here? Was the crew in there? The cockpit is pretty torn up.

It was this plane:
Etihad Airbus Crashes Into Wall During Testing

It says some people were hurt, but no deaths. It happened in 2007.

Long story short, they were doing a runup and were annoyed by audio warnings. They knew which breaker(s) to pull to disable the audio, but apparently didn't realize that this would also disable the parking brake...
