I agree. In fact, the only real similarity that I observed (keeping in mind that I design buildings; I do not demolish them) is that there was a significant structural failure mechanism created at the mid height level in both collapses.

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
The referenced youtube video shows the demolition of an old 16 =
storey concrete structure in Calgary I think most of you will find it =
One feature of this demolition is that some of the explosives =
were also placed at mid height as well as at the base. It is =
interesting to compare and contrast this demolition with the World Trade =
Centre collapse that some people (mistakenly, in my opinion) think might =
have also been a controlled demolition.
