Where were you when the plane hit the tallest building in New York?

If you are like me, you were not yet born, for it was 63 years ago Monday when the 79th floor of the Empire State Building was struck by a B-25 that got lost in heavy fog. The crash (pictured) left 14 dead and shocked the nation. Lawsuits that followed were precedent setting.

Please listen to an outstanding report which aired on NPR Monday.

Thanks to Matt for bringing this fascinating story to my attention.
