Fact of the Day  

 

More Information  

In trying to fly to Newark Airport (west of NYC), a B-52 bomber was contacted by Laguardia Airport (east of NYC) and told to land due to the thick fog. After stubbornly moving on, the dispatcher is rumored to say that the fog was so thick that he couldn't see the top of the Empire State Building.

He was eventually given a military OK to fly as a last resort. In the center of the dense fog he lowered to find some clarity and found himself in the center of a multitude of skyscrapers. He could no longer meander through and finally ceased flight in the 79th floor of the Empire State Building. Parts of the plane (an engine) went completely through and out the other side of the building. The other found the elevator shaft, knocked the elevator into a free fall and then caused a fire from the basement up [source]. As we all know, the building still stands strong.
