1997-98 Photos - Clean Air Facility demo

removing the CAF foundation
Above, this is probably Martin Lewis taking apart the Clean Air Facility foundation...both the original and the added pieces when it was jacked up in 1986-87. I don't (yet) have any photos of the building itself being made to go away.

Digging out the center area after the center steel has been removed.
remains of the old Clean Air Facility
A view from upwind after the steel has been removed. The aluminum stairs are visible...but I don't know what that wood structure is in front of the pickup.

The first two photos are from Scott "Snackbar" Konu...the third one is from Chris Rock.

Meanwhile in the dark sector, the new VIPER telescope was being installed.
