Before Nine Eleven

Nine Eleven is not the first time that a plane flew into the tallest building in New York City.  In 1945, the Empire State Building was the tallest building in New York.  It took less than 14 months to build that massive structure.  Maybe they dug the foundation hole sooner than "construction."  Anyway, in June of 1945 it was foggy.  An Army Air Corps plane flew into the 79th floor.  It was the floor of the Catholic War Relief offices.  Eleven office workers and three crewmen were killed.  Pilot error.  There might have been a search light beacon at the top of the building.  If you see the 1930s King Kong movie let me know.  Cause he was up there.  I know that there was at one time, if not now, a beacon.  Let us all be beacons of light for those who are in a fog and lost.
