A rather odd coincidence

This morning, Lair Simon commented on the terrorist plot to blow up the Sears Tower, and asked if the attack had succeeded, what would then become the tallest building in the US?

Well, I’m a sucker for that kind of trivia, so I went digging — and was surprised by the answer.

It seems that the current second-tallest building in the United States has already been hit by an airplane, and survived…

Just the facts, ma'am
