The second try just worked. It's not flat though. The lower section seats are still in tact.

I used to live a few miles from there. Here are some pics of the abandoned stadium... http://www.viralforest.com/abandoned-pontiac-silverdome-detroit/

Ditto.   I remember looking across fields and seeing the Silverdoom outside my school

I’m surprised it was not knocked down sooner.  Newer stadium have come and gone. 
And it was still standing
