A building implosion is a one-time thing; once a structure has been razed, there’s no resetting for a take two. That’s why The Weather Channel set up its livestream camera of the Georgia Dome’s demolition over half an hour before the first scheduled kaboom—except it forgot to double-check the local bus schedule.
Mere seconds after the first explosive charges are fired, one of Atlanta’s MARTA (Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority) buses makes a scheduled stop right in front of where the camera has been perched for over 30 minutes, blocking everything but the Georgia Dome’s collapsing roof and plumes of rising smoke. The timing was tragic, but ironically this video is now going to get far more views thanks to that trolling bus. [The Weather Channel via James Crugnale]
