  1. I remember this demolition was not completed as planned. The demolition was scheduled on the Sunday. Due to unplanned findings the building ended up sitting at a 40° angle after the initial blast. I dont think the final demolition took place until the next Wednesday.

    • It was at the angle at the first attempt, due to the one inch diameter re-enforcement bars in the concrete, when they burnt through them it soon went down on the Wednesday.
