Farewell, Thunderbird.

With two permits issued Thursday, ownership of the closed and crumbling 59-year-old Bethelite property, originally the Thunderbird Motor Hotel and Dinner Theatre, can demolish the property along the Arlington Expressway.

The site is north along the Arlington Expressway and east of the former Town & Country Shopping Center, which is being renovated into the College Park retail and apartment center. It is 4 miles from Downtown over the Mathews Bridge.
