Busting the Bridge

In my early days I was much Physics oriented.  A classic phenomena of real world dynamic physics is resonance, and the best example given was always the collapse of the Tacoma Narrows bridge. Great because it had scale and had been filmed live.  Electrons and photons are just too small to capture the drama. Good film makes for 'proof'.  Transparency?  Now it appears that the explanation has been debunked.  In Medium.  It was flutter and not resonance.   Or could it have been both?
