Bus photobombs flawless shot of Georgia Dome demolition

TV crew was set to record Georgia Dome implosion, then the bus ...

While there are plenty of videos circling the web showing the implosion of the dome, you'll get a real kick out of this one by The Weather Channel. So early this morning, 4,800 pounds of explosives were used to implode the Georgia Dome without damaging the new stadium, just 80 feet away.

Almost 5,000 pounds of explosives are on hand to blast the Georgia Dome in Atlanta to smithereens Monday at 7:30 a.m. A vast debris cloud hovered over the site before slowly drifting across downtown. The former home turf of the Atlanta Falcons was the largest domed stadium in the USA and had been in use for 25 years before its historic demolition. "If this is the biggest story, we're really glad about that", Metro Atlanta Regional Transit Authority (MARTA) chief marketing and communications officer Goldie Taylor told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The decision to build a new stadium wasn't surprising, being the way of the sports world now, but the Georgia Dome was still a more than functional stadium that had been renovated fairly recently.
