“Airplanes took aim”? How does that work?

Imagine if they covered Pearl Harbor this way


“On December 7, 1941, airplanes took aim and seriously damaged the United States naval base at Pearl Harbor."

The NY Times has updated its awful 9/11 article to clarify that airplanes did not aim themselves at the WTC


Here’s the new tweet:

@nytimes



18 years after nearly 3,000 people were lost, families of those killed in the terror attacks will gather at the 9/11 memorial. There will be a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m., then the names of the dead — one by one — will be recited. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/11/nyregion/september-11-tribute-ceremony.html …

You point a plane or car at a target and head for it. That's an example of "taking aim". You know, like when James Fields took aim at a group of protestors in Charlottesville.
