Tiger-Taunting Plane Banned by the FAA

Good grief, can they coddle this guy any more?
An airplane that towed banners poking fun at Tiger Woods' sex scandal during the Masters has been ordered to stop until it undergoes minor repairs.

Kathleen Bergen, a spokeswoman for the Federal Aviation Administration, said Friday that FAA flight safety inspectors issued the order after meeting with the plane's pilot.

The single-engine Cessna made two flights near Augusta National Golf Club as Woods played Thursday in the first round of the Masters, close enough that the banners taunting Woods could be seen from the course.

Bergen said the plane was flying for a company called Air America Aerial Ads based in Genoa, Ohio. She said inspectors were responding to a request by FAA air traffic managers in Augusta.
I imagine soon the folks at Augusta will tell patrons they must only think nice thoughts when near his Tiger-ness.
