INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -The RCA Dome is now a bowl.
Sixteen large fans that kept the dome's fabric roof aloft were shut down Wednesday morning, allowing the roof to deflate and fall within about 50 feet of the stadium floor.
The dome near downtown Indianapolis is being demolished, now that the Indianapolis Colts have moved to the nearby Lucas Oil Stadium.
Former Mayor Bill Hudnut gave the order to shut off the fans. The 8-acre roof took about 35 minutes to deflate.
The upper level seating area will be imploded in December.
The dome opened in 1984. It was the Indianapolis Colts' home until August, when Lucas Oil Stadium opened.
Once the roof is removed, demolition work will accelerate with an implosion of the dome planned for December.
