Giant Banana over Texas Update - News, Weather, Sports - Austin, TX | Plan to float giant banana over Texas fizzles: "SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A plan to float a giant helium-filled banana blimp over Texas has gone bust -- due to a lack of money.

Montreal-based artiest Cesar Saez (says) says the banana plan is suspended.

He says the whole attempt was to develop the idea of artworks in space.

The plan to float a huge, inflated banana over Texas was announced in late 2006. It called for a launch near Hermosillo, Mexico, this fall."

That's too bad. I was looking forward to this (I live in West TX).
