Lack of dust suppression, not many happy parents over at the school across the street. A water jet blaster arrived on site at shifts end after the fact.

Dropping hanging sections

Wow, what a mess Orin has made of this demolition. I'm perplexed as to why they left the west facing portion of 304 standing and turned their attention to 300. For the reasons that @Nwalsh mentioned, 300 building should have been demolished on a Saturday or Sunday or the whole complex should have been imploded. Great photos and Video, Nwalsh.

Hopefully, I'll get some aerial shots on the weekend but the forecast isn't looking great with winds tomorrow and rain on Sunday.

Thanks, yeah I had someone with me in the demolition industry and the approach to taking this down was raising eyebrows. The whole purpose of a high reach is to take small pieces off by chopping into small chunks and work from the top down. Leaving large amounts of weight hanging unsupported by rebar, means that at any moment that could drop without contact. This also reduces the amount of dust. It was comical seeing a man holding a firehose on the ground, trying to spray into the air well below the cloud of dust. Many of these high reach machines are equipped with a firehose that run up the boom and sprays right at the point of shear contact, if not that than a water truck or jet water blower unit is on site.

Example of a clean demo, no large chunks left hanging overnight and no large overhangs.

I was inspired by @Nwalsh to upload a video of today's flight. I normally don't shoot a lot of video but have a few I haven't published and tried uploading to YouTube.

Behold ladies and gentlemen:
(Drum roll please.....)

I have another video that I need to trim but in the meantime, here are a few photos from the flight today.

I'm glad these are gone, city needs more rental and affordable housing. The grocery store across the street, proximity to the highway and 2 major bus routes enable you to build high density in the area.

Love the overall birds eye view, hard to distinguish what is going on from ground level at times. Nice video, what is that a Mavic pro @bangkok ?

It's the Mini2. I wouldn't be legally allowed to fly a Mavic Pro there since it is controlled airspace.
