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

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 ;)

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

A visitor from - posted Tue February 21, 2012:
This would be one of those rare times when the tower declares mayday.

A visitor from - posted Sun December 20, 2009:
The tower is cleared to land.

A visitor from United States posted Fri October 24, 2008:

I can only imagine what the people taking off and landing were thinking. :-)

A visitor from France posted Sun August 6, 2006:
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!

A visitor from United States posted Sun August 6, 2006:
Excellent that you caught it in motion!
