Detecting the Ever-Elusive UAV
History repeats itself
History sometimes repeats itself. On 28 July 1945, a B-25 Mitchell twin-engined bomber crashed into the 79th and 80th floors of the Empire State Building in New York. On 4 February 2016, the same skyscraper received a second aircraft hit when an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) crashed into the building’s 40th floor.
