From Paul J. Smith's Weekly History Revue:
July 28th -
It was foggy over Manhattan on this date in 1945. Lieutenant Colonel William F. Smith was at the controls of an Army Air Force B-25 bomber in-bound to Newark. It was suggested that he divert, but Smith said that he could make it.
The veteran of many a combat mission descended through the clouds, found himself over Fifth Avenue, and flew right into the side of the Empire State Building.
He hit at the 78th floor, killing himself, two others on the plane, and 11 people in the building. Flaming gasoline flooded several floors. One of the engines punched all the way through the building and landed on the roof of another building on the other side. An elevator operator named Betty Lou Oliver was completing her last day of work when the plane severed a cable, sending her elevator cage plummeting over 1K feet to the basement. She was badly injured but survived.
