    Banner Comes Off Tow-Plane; Banner Falls Into Los Cerritos Homeowner's Backyard, Downing Power Lines

    Banner Aug 21/05(August 21, 2005) -- A banner towed by a plane that took off from LB Airport somehow came loose today (Aug. 21) at about 1:00 p.m...and the banner landed on power lines in the backyard of a Los Cerritos area home in the 4100 block of Del Mar Ave. (generally between Los Cerritos Park and Virginia Country Club).

    Banner Aug 21/05Neighbors reported hearing two loud "bangs" when the weight of the banner pulled down power lines, apparently causing an electrical arc and short.

    [This photo and preceding one taken from neighboring home, thank you.]

    Banner Aug 21/05The adventure drew a response from LBPD, LBFD, Airport Police...and per protocol the FAA will be investigating.

    Banner Aug 21/05Edison also responded and carefully de-energized the lines. (Note absence of power lines to the left, knocked out by the banner.

    Banner Aug 21/05No one appeared hurt and there was no visible fire.
