Hard to believe this would happen, but it's happened before.
1. I don‘t think it is possible to survive a flapless T/O at this density altitude and take off mass.
2. Even if they did - after reaching 1000ft and 300kt everything is fine and they could have continued the flight. However, here the disaster started at this point of the flight.
