Veterans Stadium Implosion
"Some 3000 pounds of explosives was loaded into the columns of Veterans Stadium. All went as planned. It was detonated at 7 a-m and now what was once a state-of-the-art facility is no more than a pile of concrete. It took about 62 seconds.
A large area around the sports complex in South Philadelphia is closed off for the implosion, and airspace above the stadium is restricted to a 15-hundred-foot elevation for a quarter-mile radius.
Crowds gathered a few blocks away to view the implosion, and pre-blast events got under way about 6:40 a-m with various city V-I-Ps taking part.
