IRVING — Five days after Texas Stadium was demolished by a series of precision explosions, we're getting a new — and closer look at the venue's final moments.

The spectacular images come from a series of remote-control cameras that were set up just a few feet from the action — closer than any photographer was allowed to go.

Protec Documentation Services studies the effects of vibrations, and they pretty much cover every demolition and blasting operation in the world.

As engineering blast consultants, Protec and Implosion World have been doing this for more than 30 years.

The company told us the Texas Stadium implosion was picture-perfect and a success.

Company officials said that out of all demolition projects, stadiums are usually the ones that spark the most emotion, and for them, the finale of the long-time home of the Dallas Cowboys  is near the top of the list.
