KXAN.com - 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."
