Tiger Aerial Assault Plane -- Grounded By FAA

4/9/2010 8:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Don't strain your neck looking up for that third Tiger Woods taunting banner to fly over Augusta -- TMZ has learned the plane has been grounded by the FAA after an unexpected last minute inspection.



We're told the FAA performed a "ramp check" on the plane last night in response to a request from an FAA air traffic controller. An FAA spokesperson tells us the investigator found "a number of mechanical issues" and sent the plane back to the airport where it is based.

The owner of the plane tells TMZ the mechanical issue was over a worn-out tag on the seat belts.

All hope for the third banner is not lost -- the owner says he is currently searching for another plane so he can carry out his assignment.

HILARIOUS, I love this whole Tiger battle.

I have heard of something that can get rid of everything nasty that comes from sports. It is called Shutout Solutions, search it in Google.

I guess it might not be able to get rid of nasty sex stories though, sorry Tiger

I wonder which one of Tiger's tramps, including Gloria Allred, hired one of their toothless, trailer park trash relatives to fly the cropdusters? Anyone? Or perhaps it was Gloria & Joselyn...get over it already, Tiger is back on the course. There is a reason you trick twits weren't invited to the Masters. And to think, you still didn't get his attention, what next? Oh wait, isn't Joselyn stripping at a club not to far from the Augusta course? Oh wait, we've all seen her disgusting implants & pathetic rants already, not impressed, another plan that backfired. Dam Clinton for leading the way!!! The whores are so filthy and used up, the Mustang Ranch put 4 pitbulls at the gate to keep these tramps out! Back to the truck stops these ho's go, they should have kept their mouths shut! Hope the 15 min were worth it.

Let's see, the Masters paid off the FAA or Tiger called the pilot and offered him 20 grand to not fly. You make the call.

Like the FAA just casually showed up to look at this plane.
