Seems that in Soviet Russia they had also an accident based on the actions that caued 9/11 tragedy.
Though in Russia it happened thirty-three years ago, in 1976.
Not much of Russian people know about that accident, it was not in Moscow or Saint-Petersburg but in rather small city of Novosibirsk, known as "Science City" - the place where a lot of Russia research centers were based in Soviet times. Even these days this city is said to be the leader in Russian offhore programming companies - tens millions dollars of offhore programing orders come there from all of the Western world.
So, back to what has happened in late seventies there. Actually it was the same scenario when man took the plane and crashed into the multistored building on purpose, with evil plans of kill and destruction in his mind.
Of course, the reasons and the scale of the accident was less smaller than twenty five years later in New York city. The thing that inclined him to this was pretty known to most of you married folks - he wanted to kill his mother in law.
It's hard to understand now, how such way of revenge to his wife's mother could come into his head in Russia, where no private aircrafts were owned neither companies could own any. As has been said he was a "bright comrade of Young Communist party, having access to training planes of Soviet Youth Sport Organization". So one day he turned from a bright comrade to an evil pilot.
It's hard to believe but he found this house correctly among the hundreds of same looking ones of the Soviet typical construction plans building whole cities of blocks of tens same looking houses. He found the correct one and then he pointed it perfectly into the flat where his wife's parents lived.
As a result - there were twelve dead and... there was not the mother-in-law among them. She was simply out of the flat that time. They didn't have cell phones at that times, he couldn't call from his plane to check if he is coming right time. And of course the mister pilot was dead too.
