We spent a couple of days with the men and women who get these banners flying, and it’s no easy task. You might think the airplanes simply take off with the banners attached.

We spent a couple of days with Banner Tow USA, a company that operates out of the Westerly State Airport in Rhode Island to find out what goes into flying these giant billboards in the sky.
