not sure how an errant tag managed to affect the following posts, but did something about it.
The OP is talking two completely different types of aircraft, and two building with (assumption) two completely different types of construction, there
are way too many variables to even pretend to draw parallels at this stage.
Might I also remind the OP, of the force equation:
force = mass x acceleration ( F = ma ).
Since acceleration is just how velocity changes over time, we can write this as
F = m (x) v/t
The F-18 is lighter, and in this case, was probably much slower (so velocity change at impact much less) than the aircraft that impacted the WTC and
Pentagon. The construction of both the Pentagon and WTC are without a doubt much more robust and able to withstand much greater forces than the
building the F-18 hit.
