Airplane crashed into the Empire State Building...
Did you know an airplane flew into the Empire State Building? Something we learnt do our trip there last week was that back in July 28 1945 in dense fog an Army Air Corps B-25 crashed into the Building at the 79th floor level. Fourteen people died. Damage to the Building cost $1 million to repair but the structural integrity of the building wasn't affected. Great picture here and more details here.
