Just see for yourself at 44:40 in.  Zira responds about the destruction of the Earth- describing it "When we were in space, we saw Bright white blinding light, then we saw the rim of the Earth... melt.  Then there was a Tornado in the sky"

Keep in mind that this movie, Escape From the Planet of the Apes is from 1971, one of many sequels that took off running with the NASA induced craze the world felt-  Astronauts, Space Ships, Walking on the Moon! 
I find the wording she used to be very astute to the flat earth model.  As though the "rim" were walls of ice- and they melted in the catastrophe... and then a huge vortex or tornado in the sky from the dome breaking..
Fun stuff.
