Video – Big Bang in Little Rock…

Dykon Explosive Demolition Corp bags another big blast.

A pair of controlled blasts brought down part of the Cecil Lynch power plant in North Little Rock on Friday.

The natural gas plant, located across the Arkansas River from Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport-Adams Field, was built in 1946, sits on a 130 acres and hadn’t been operational since 2013, an official said.

The plant was retired as part of an ongoing plan to modernise the company’s generating portfolio and provide low-cost power to customers, Entergy said in a news release.
