APTOPIX Metrodome Deflation [Duplicate]

The Metrodome roof, seen from an upper floor of the U.S. Bank Building, is deflated shortly after 7 a.m. Saturday morning, Jan. 18, 2014 in Minneapolis. The 10 acres of Teflon-coated fabric were done deflating in 35 minutes. The deflation and the demolition of the Dome beginning next week will make way for construction of a new $1 billion Vikings stadium. (AP Photo/The Star Tribune, Jim Gehrz) MANDATORY CREDIT; ST.
