Before September 11, 2001, Had an Airplane Ever Hit a New York City Skyscraper?

 There were at least two earlier, accidental crashes. On July 28, 1945 a B-25 Mitchell bomber en route from Massachusetts to New Jersey hit the Empire State Building, killing all on board plus eleven office workers. And on May 20, 1946, a Beechcraft C-45 Expeditor flying from Louisiana to New Jersey slammed into 40 Wall Street, killing all on board.
