December 18, 1960.

 Two planes collide in mid air over NYC. One lands in the streets of Brooklyn and the other lands in Staten Island. Additional information can be found in the FDNY and NYC Firehouse thread under Engine 219/Ladder 105. I think other stories and photos have been posted on this site as well about this incident.

 As a kid I remember watching this on the news.

 Some photos showing the total devastation.

 Thanks to the friend who sent me this.
