Tacoma Narrows Bridge Is Falling Down

So I'm sure everyone has seen the video footage of the infamous Tacoma Narrows Bridge collapse. It became a case study of engineering design, and also a lesson in my physics classes.

This news article describes the detailed event leading up to that collapse, involving a few people who were present right before the historical event. While there were no human fatalities, the incident did kill Tubby, a pet dog who was stuck in one of the vehicles left on the bridge that day.
