You might have noticed...the thread and story is not only NOT about believing the media report and initial version of the events, as reported, but
actually highlighting HOW inaccurate it was vs. the visual evidence anyone could plainly see themselves.
Now the link in the OP has updated and dramatically changed in content since the thread was created, shortly after this happened. What had been there
and been the only reports anywhere I could find on the internet at the time consisted of what is quoted in the OP and about 4 sentences after it.
Nothing more. No further details. Just a reference to a statement obtained from someone at the FAA office and that formed pretty much the start,
finish and end of their WHOLE body of facts to report.
Given that was what wrote the only information they had? I'm guessing they did, in fact, call the FAA and actually did talk to someone in
Public/Media Relations or whoever it is the major L.A. studios talk to when they call those folks. What followed is more than likely what they were
....which is where this thread picked up about how FAA people making statements when there is no information to state is probably a really really bad
idea. In that? Oh, I think it was a complete success for the point it was meant to make.
* I'd also noted in another post, but you apparently missed ...... The Helicopter owned by the reporting source was about 1,000 feet over this hangar
at the time I made the thread, orbiting the scene and broadcasting the images you see in the OP linked pic live. Obviously the media knew it was a
crock and inaccurate TOO...but they had only one statement from anyone, anywhere and what else to put in writing? The crew in the chopper sounded
almost as confused and bemused as many on this thread.
