PONTIAC, Michigan An official at the Silverdome site told WDIV the implosion did not go according to plan. Explosives were placed on each of the steel beams that support the Silverdome’s upper ring. The blasts were intended to break the beams and cause the colossal ring to come crashing down, WDIV reported.

MLive says that after a brief ceremony on Sunday, Dec. 3, officials and spectators watched outside the historic stadium as charges blew out some of the support beams on the structure in an effort to have its upper deck collapse.
