Sprengung der Fliegerbombe / Schwabing, München / 28.8.2012 from Simon Aschenbrenner on Vimeo.

A big old World War II bomb went off in Munich yesterday evening. It was a controlled explosion. A large section of the city had been closed down, people had been evacuated and the university canteen was serving rigatoni in tomato sauce to the people who had suddenly found themselves without a home.  The mood just before the explosion was very odd; it has started to rain a little, it was quite windy and, just to remind us all that the summer has really gone, it had already turned dark. People were muttering about the bomb and were discussing if we would be able to hear the explosion from this side of the city. The bomb went off but I missed it because I had popped inside to go to the toilet.

They had cleaned it before they finally blew it up.
