The Pontiac Silverdome (1975-2017)

The year is 2015, the Silverdome's roof collapsed two years ago, the inside lies in ruin, the practice shell has collapsed.  You never know what you may import even if the map shows a empty lot.

Texture Colors adjusted -20 Blue
.5 metallic factor on gltf

Includes what seems to be a deflated indoor practice field shell or tailgaiting tent next to a HIgh School and/or outdoor practice field.

The Pontiac Silverdome in Pontiac, Michigan, in the general vicinity of Detroit, was most famous for hosting Wrestlemania 3 where 93,173 watched Hulk Hogan body slam Andre the Giant on March 29, 1987.

The Detroit Lions left The Silverdome after the 2001 season but the venue held on hosting various events until 2013 when the roof collapsed. In 2015 it was announced tha the stadium would be demolished in the Spring of 2016, after delays and an arson in the pressbox in June 2016 the stadium was condemed and cleared for demolition in 2017.  The Silverdome's demolition was set to commence on December 3, 2017 but due to a wiring issue 8 of the explosive charges failed to detonate, a second attempt was sucessful the next day, by March 2018 the last wall of the Silverdome had fallen.

I love this capture showing the remains of the Silverdome, the seats are still there so I will guess it is between 2015 when a lot of google photogrammetry seems to have been taken and 2017 when the stadium was cleared for demo.  If you can nail it down to a more specific date let me know!

    Hello, I believe the satellite photography was taken in mid 2016. The inflatable football dome next to the stadium is deflated in the scenery and that was shut down after 2015 I believe. Some satellite imagery shows the deflated dome was covered and murky water in 2017 so definitely earlier than that. The date could be pinpointed with the parking lot lot as a small "drag strip" was painted in and dieselgate cars were added throughout 2015-2017. It appears the Bing maps parking lot data is pre 2015.
