You must be crazy, the building itself will be strong enough to withstand a plane crash. Its not like the old world trade center.

Ye maybe they will have a guy on the top floor ,preferably with an rpg or a turret gun constantly on guard waiting for any incoming flying objects. What a job that would be hey.

Yes. The spire is actually a missile, and if any aircraft comes within 15000 ft of the building, the spire will detatch from the antenna and shoot the plane. If it happens to miss, the spires individual sections seperate and expand throughout the radius. After 20 seconds (IIRC, it mightve been 15), the pieces explode, creating a fireworks display for all of NY and destroying the plane.

While this is happening, since everyone is being distracted by the plane/explosions, the second spire hidden in the upper floors of the building will rise upward and replace the original spire, therefore making it appear as if nothing on the building had changed

I got the good on what's really going on. They have genetically engineered Super Gorilla. And he'll smash any plane that comes near this. But keep that between me and you.

You know there is a giant "LASER" on the moon (death star) that can shoot down any plane heading towards the building> We call it the Alan Parsons Project.
