where was the blast fence? didn't see one in the video, also didn't see any tamping, and the charges were set to the inside of the supports so all debris would be blown out, should have used sandbags to direct the blasts and the charges should have been set to the outside of the supports to blow debris into the structure.

ultraholland: Here's a new video that was uploaded by a spectator


WARNING: not for the faint of heart.

hmmm, I don't trust your warning and it being on youtube. We all know youtube pulls "not for the faint of heart" videos.

Why didn't they just burn some jet fuel inside it for a couple of hours? Sumbiatch would have come down straight as an arrow.

It said they were standing in the so called designated safe area. Someone is going to own part of that demolition company now.
