Wolfsburg Stadium Roof (NOT a failure / disaster)

Wolfsburg Stadium Roof (NOT a failure / disaster)

Wolfsburg Stadium Roof (NOT a failure / disaster)

(OP)
Actually - NOT a failure or disaster (but I wasn't sure where else to post), as the roof seems to be intact - but pretty impressive to watch!

Wolfsburg was hit by a major storm two weeks ago, with wind speeds of up to 178 km/hr reported. The stadium roof is a very lightweight cable / membrane structure - and boy! Does it get moving!

Scary, if you were there. Surprised they didn't lose any of the membrane material.

In another time and place... they could install a trolley and sell tickets for rides on the "Roof Wave" machine.
