"The flyovers will continue.”
Joseph MacRae, who sponsored the flying of anti-Chargers/anti-Spanos banners over StubHub Center in Carson (L.A. County) last year when the Chargers were playing there, intends to repeat this year if he can raise the money.
He is trying to get financial support via GoFundMe. “The work we did by generating national media, going viral, and making our voices heard was the whole point of the campaign!” MacRae writes on GofundMe in a post named “Baby Dean Spanos.” Last year, there was controversy over whether the Spanos family asked the Federal Aviation Administration to ban the flights. The family claimed it didn’t. The administration told a Union-Tribune columnist that the law requires a waiver to fly over a stadium with more than 30,000 seating capacity during a game. StubHub seats only 30,000 and the Chargers can’t even fill that.
“So what’s next? The flyovers will continue,” writes MacRae, if he can raise the funds. In 2019, the team hopes to play in a new Inglewood stadium it will share with the Los Angeles Rams.
