Atlanta Fulton-County Stadium Imploded

At 8:04 a.m., Atlanta Mayor Bill Campbell pressed the button initiating a series of 1,200 detonations that imploded the 32-year-old Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium, former home of the Atlanta Braves, Atlanta Falcons, and Olympic baseball. The site of the old stadium was transformed into a parking lot for Turner Field.
