The airplane that carried two banners in the skies above Augusta National has been grounded by the FAA until it undergoes minor repairs, according to an Associated Press report. The issue was a worn-out tag on the seat belt, according to the news gossip Web site TMZ.
The single-engine Cessna made two flights on Thursday, carrying banners that taunted Tiger Woods for his recent infidelities. One banner read “Tiger: Did you mean Booty-ism?” and the other read, “Sex Addict. Yeah. Right. Sure. Me Too!”
FAA spokesman Kathleen Bergen said safety inspectors met with the pilot Thursday evening.
Air America Aerial Ads, based in Genoa, Ohio, designed the banners. The plane was allowed to fly back to Ohio for the repairs.
