FlightGear does not do collision detection.
FlightGear does Height Above Terrain determination.

If you want to crash when you fly into a building 
in SRC / Scenery / hitlist.cxx  
change the two occurences of 

       if ( alt > hit_elev && alt < max_alt_m ) {
        if ( alt > hit_elev ) {

Note with this change you won't be able to taxi inside of hangars 
or fly under bridges though.
