Uh oh!!!!

The ultimate do-gooder has done wrong!!!

Angelina Jolie's private plane has reportedly been BANNED from taking flight after she neglected to renew her registration on her Cirrus SR-22.

And the required paperwork didn't expire yesterday! Actually, the registration for her fully loaded wings went rotten June 30!!!

While Angie (or her people) sent in the renewal application, it had arrived far too late for her to legally fly and she was notified of that fact too! The FAA claims that they sent a letter to the actress' Chivan Productions in September stating the renewal was no good because it missed the deadline.

Ay dios mio!!!!

It looks like Ang may have come to believe

Three Planes Almost Collided Above The Reagan National Airport!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & True

US Airways almost had three planes collide in air

So scary!

Three planes flying above the Reagan National Airport in Washington D.C. almost crashed into each other on Tuesday due to "miscommunication."

What could have been a disastrous incident occurred while air traffic controllers were making adjustments for landing and departing aircraft because of bad weather. 192 people aboard the three planes were just 12 seconds away from colliding at 400 mph!

Thankfully, the tragedy was avoided. The Federal Aviation Administration explained the situation by saying:

Airlines May Loosen Ban On Electronics In Flight!

Filed under: Tech Talk

Airplane Interior

“At this time, please turn off all portable electronics” may SOON be a phrase of the past!!

Looks like the government is taking baby steps in getting airlines to allow passengers to use their favorite electronic gadgets for the WHOLE flight…even during takeoffs AND landings!

About time!!!

The Federal Aviation Administration is currently in talks to see if they can find out practical (and safe) ways to test the use of devices like tablets, e-readers and music players during critical flight moments.

The tricky part? Not all electronic devices have the same amount of power, making testing difficult. Also, with technology quickly changing, different generations of devices would EACH have to be tested and approved.

…that makes for a LOT of devices!

Mysterious Details About The Tiger Woods Insult Plane!

We don't know about you, but we got a huge kick out of the HIGHlarious pranksters who flew banners poking fun at Tiger Woods over the Masters Tournament yesterday!

What's even better yet, it appears that all of the parties involved in making the plan happen are covering one another's tracks - nobody's spilling the indentities of those responsible!

Despite an Federal Aviation Administration-issued advisory to keep the airspace surrounding the Masters open, an official restriction was never put into place, so the plane technically did nothing wrong!

According to FAA spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen claims that the pilot was "very cooperative with inspectors" and "all the paperwork was in place."

Sadly, it appears the plane will not be making a reappearance at the Masters - Bergen revealed that the plane had some minor mechanical issues that needed to be resolved before it could fly another banner and is currently undergoing repairs!

Too bad! We think they need one more victory lap!

Thanks for the LOLz, mystery plane!
