The Forest based group wants to fly anti-homosexual banners over the park for this weekend's Gay Day festivities.

The Federal Aviation Administration prevents flights below three-thousand feet over theme parks in an attempt to prevent terrorist attacks. Also, planes are not allowed to within three miles of such a tourist attraction.
The network sued yesterday saying the no fly zone violated its free speech rights, but the judge today rejected their argument.

((Families flying to their next vacation will be sharing a lot more than luggage space. Parents, kids and business travelers are breathing re-cycled air and some are worried about whats coming through those vents. The President of the flight attendants union testified before Congress Thursday, and said poor maintenance allows carbon monoxide, neurotoxins and even viruses to circulate through the cabin.

(SOT, no super)

The risk appears quite small
The FAA says theres no proof that recycled air is a source of disease, including SARS. In fact, anyone sitting in close quarters can be infected.

(SOT, Jon Jordan, FAA Air Surgeon)

We face the same risks in an aircraft that we would face in a crowded movie theater, restaurant or office.
But some Congressmen say SARS is clearly being transmitted by infected travelers.

(SOT, Rep. James Oberstar, D-MN)

The point is, people are getting sick, flight attendants are getting sick. We need to do better.

(CHRIS LAWRENCE/CBS NEWS)

Its difficult to track onboard outbreaks because there are no international standards. Airlines dont retain seating charts the same way, and dont have to give that information to health authorities.
So theres no good way to verify that one person became sick after sitting next to another. Even flight attendants say the greatest risk to fliers is not SARS, but common illnesses passed between people on the same flight.

(ELAINE STARK/ON VACATION)

Germs fly around in that plane, thats for sure.
But studies have shown no clear evidence that recycled air makes people sick. And experts have testified that the best protection remains on the ground, and keeping sick people boarding an airplane. Chris Lawrence, CBS News.))
