Late Tuesday afternoon, a plane flew by S&P offices in New York with a pointed message trailing behind on a banner saying, “Thanks for the downgrade. You should all be fired,” reports Business Insider
Lucy Nobbe, Vice President for an investment bank, was behind the message, according to Fortune.
“I originally wanted to fly it over Washington, D.C., but learned that you can’t do that,” she said. “So I chose Wall Street instead, but didn’t specifically intend it to fly over S&P. I’m just a mother from St. Louis who feels the only reason we got downgraded was people in politics.”
Matthew Applegate of Aerial Sign North piloted the plane, but could not be reached for comment. According to Business Insider, a flight like this would run anywhere from $1,200 to $1,500.
