Old ATL Control Tower - What an awesome sight. It took only 9 seconds from the one and only charge to take the tower down!

It should have been a hard day of work for the Airport Public Relation Dept: "Please, do not panic, this is a controled explosion, not terror!" :-) Nice shot!

This would be one of those rare times when the tower declares mayday.

This makes you feel great about control towers, one charge and the entire thing falls down! Anyway, I like the picture! :)

LOL! I wonder how many marks of fingerprints and cheeks were left on the glass of the terminal behind as they all were probably trying to stare out of the window and watch the terror............................AND I also wonder how many police officers or security got run over with screaming, crying and terrified familites ;)
