I would imagine the Pentagon has a similar construction being a tactical target.
The video you showed does not show the wall after the hit. The pentagon had massive holes as a result of the impact. I would then imagine that if the plane was able to go right through the wall it would leave behind some debris IMO. In the video it looks like the plane does not get through the wall therefore leading me to believe that the pentagon was not built the same way (therefore would not be able to atomize a plane)
Also the plane that hit the pentagon was allegedly a Boeing 757. Much larger then your test plane.
that was supposed to be the Boeing 757
And here is the aftermath
Boeing 757 atomized? I don't believe so
At any rate a 757 could not punch holes through 3 rings of the Pentagon, or let's call it very unlikely at best.
On the first and second floors, the Pentagon has continuous interior space extending from the facade to the inner-facing wall of the C-Ring, joining the C-, D-, and E-Rings. This is because the light wells between the C- and D-Rings and between the D- and E-Rings only descend to the bottom of the third floor. The only structural elements interrupting this space are columns apparently spaced on 10-foot centers along the direction perpendicular to the facade, with each first-floor column having a square cross-section measuring 21 inches on a side.
