INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - The RCA Dome deflation certainly caughtthe eyes of folks all around downtown Wednesday morning.
From the ground below or building windows up high, it was thetalk of the town.
"Anytime you see something major like the removal of a buildingof that stature, I guess it's a big deal," said John Shertzer.
"We've seen buildings implode and we've seen destruction, butyou've never seen a Dome, a big white Dome come down," said DaveGuarino.
In just about 40 minutes the Dome was deflated. Patty Marple sawit go up 24 years ago, and witnessed it go down.
"I kind of hate to see it go but Lucas Oil Stadium is beautifuland it's a great facility, so just the start of a new era," saidMarple.
It didn't fall in one fell swoop, but in a super-slow, reversebubbling downward. Kind of anti-climactic, but the deflation isn'tdeflating memories or hopes.
"It's like the backyard shed and the stadium is like the newhouse so it's time to move in and let the old one go," saidVino.
"I did a lot of different events inside there. It was great, butI'm glad to see it go and to see the new Indianapolis get started,"said Andrew Sparkman.
