(data on the empire state building crash)
The plane that hit the Empire State Bldg was a B-25 Mitchell bomber. It was lost in fog and hit the building. Basically, it hit a Catholic charities office and dropped a load of flaming gas down an elevator shaft. Quite a mess. You can still see the patched spot on the exterior of the bldg. It's on the 79th floor on the north side of the building. The crash killed 13 people--3 in the plane and 10 in the building. The pilot's name was William Smith.
