The stunning stunt, flying a banner overhead just hours before Obama was expected to visit the USS Carl Vinson to watch a college basketball game scheduled on its deck, rattled more than a few individuals, as the pilot for the banner company reported the tower told him to “depart the area,” because there were “a lot of telephone calls” coming in.
National Sky Ads, which flew the banner, reported to WND, “Our pilot was told to move even though we were not in restricted air space.”
The company added, “We circled North Island until the tower moved us out due to phone calls.”
The event was scheduled to coincide with announced plans for Obama to attend the Carrier Classic game on the deck of Carl Vinson in San Diego Bay. Those plans were announced earlier this week.
The banner said, “Impeach Obama” and then included an announcement for a 3 p.m. protest at North Island.
