On July 28, 1945, an Army Air Corps B-25 bomber crashed into the 79th floor of the Empire State Building. Fourteen people died and $1 million damage was done to the building.
Investigation showed that the structural integrity of the Empire State Building was not compromised by this accident, but the cost to repair the damage was on the order of a million dollars. For more information, you might check your local library for old copies of New York daily newspapers on microfilm; this was front page news in New York City on July 29, 1945.
