Vancouver view of False Creek and deflated BC Place dome

On January 5, 2007 Vancouver, BC’s domed stadium suffered weather and operational error resulting in an unplanned deflation of the giant dome.

I recall when the stadium was opened in 1983 and many 747 engine were required to inflate the dome and airlock doors keep the pressure adequate to maintain the structure.

This simply captures a 360 degree view of the city scape of north east false creek during this unique situation.
