Jetstar Cadet Pilots Tailstrike
Not a great start to a career with a tailstrike on first takeoff:

"On 11 May 2016, an Airbus A320-232, registered VH-VGF (VGF) and operated by Jetstar Airways Pty Ltd was taking off on runway 27 at Melbourne Airport, Victoria. The flight crew consisted of a training captain in the left seat, a cadet pilot in the right seat and a safety pilot, who was also the first officer, in the jump-seat. This was the cadet pilotís first takeoff as pilot flying. During rotation, the tail of the aircraft contacted the runway surface.
