Britney Not Cleared For Takeoff, FAA SaysSo it turns out Los Angeles skies were not cleared of planes for Britney Spears and her inevitable return to the hospital. The Federal Aviation Administration, which would know about such things, has written in with a correction. Along with website the Superficial, People quoted a source saying authorities would "block off the road and airspace" for Spears' hospital trip but it turns out only local authorities were involved. In other words, our government is almost as ill-prepared for a celebrity breakdown as it is for other mass emergencies and the smart paparazzi can go ahead and buy a Predator drone or Apache gunship or whatever. FAA email to Gawker after the jump.
