Actually, it could!

In the virtual world what is displayed is not necessary accurate to how the vehicle handles!
To reduce complexity developers often take shortcuts and set a point X to represent enough damage on wing as to render it "gone", but the FM still sees enough that it is possible to fly the airplane (although flying sideways).
