Video: Iconic BC Place Dome Deflates

On Tuesday morning, the Vancouver skyline changed forever.

BC Place Stadium deflated its giant pillow-cushion dome which stood tall for 27 years in the heart of Downtown, Vancouver.

At 11am, all 16 fans were turned off and the bubble deflated in less than 50 minutes.

Watch the Video:

The dome was deflated to make way for a $563 million retractable roof which will extend the life of the stadium by 40 years. Next year it will be home to the Vancouver Whitecaps, the BC Lions and the 2011 Grey Cup.
