Controlled Demolition In My Street - Cool Video

Mon Nov 20, 2006 2:56 am

An apartment building close to mine in Abu Dhabi was demolished in a controlled explosion yesterday, and I managed to get this video clip.

Note that the first to run were the police! It was quite an experience to be so close - especially getting caught in the 'cloud'!

Quite a tidy job, hey?

Quite interesting, and a splendid perfect job done by the "miners". But WHY was this fairly new and somewhat elegant building destroyed ?

It may look new and elegant on the outside, but think of the foundations and the insides...

Very cool video none the less!
