fast. A pilot towing advertisement banners all over Oahu this past weekend was cited, but the company is showing NO signs of giving up. Mayor Kirk Caldwell and the environmental group the Outdoor Circle have already said what Aerial Banners North is doing is illegal. However, we spoke to ABN who said its attorney is on his way to the islands. The company says it got a waiver from the Federal Aviation Administration--- but the mayor insists that DOES NOT supercede local and state laws -- which ban aerial advertising. The pilot flying the banners around will have to appear in District court for the fine next month, but the Mayor says he also wants to take action against A-B-N. 21.22 WE ALSO NEED TO SERVE THE COMPANY. THEY ARE NOT LISENCED TO DO BUSINESS IN THE STATE OF HAWAII SO WE NEED TO SERVE THEM IN ANOTHER JURASDICTION. IF THEY WERE LICENSED WE WOULD SERVE THEIR AGENT RIGHT HERE. WE ARE NOT BACKING AWAY WE WILL FIND THE OWNER OF the COMPANY AND SERVE THE OWNER. Caldwell is urging the FAA to revoke its certificate of waiver. We have confirmed an attorney for ABN is on his way to Honolulu tonight..
