I don't think you can say it's been proven wrong, really. A plane *can* destroy a building by hitting it, but that doesn't mean it *will*. After all, there have been other (smaller) planes that ran into buildings without any serious consequences for the building.
Right, but you knew what I meant.
As far as I'm aware, none of those planes which have hit buildings without destroying them (from memory, I know only of the Empire State Building one, and another one shortly after 9/11 in Tampa) were very small planes. And even then, I'm sure they caused serious consequences, if not necessarily destroying them.
