And now about LAX.
Slowhatch, puddin, kogs and I have have been working behind the scenes in an attempt to track down our teams for some time.
We can now tell you that we do have confirmation by LAX that filming was done there by WRP.
But even more interesting is what we don't have.
After hours on the phone with various officials in the film world, and a site visit by Slowhatch to EIDC, we do NOT have any evidence that film permits were obtained for LA, and have in fact been told that no permits were issued.
I have also been assured that there was no support arranged with/by the CHP, who would have been involved had the teams been on the highways.
All of these conversations have been with the people who either issue the permits or would have known had a permit been issued.
What does this mean? Well, if we believe these assurances, and I have no reason to think otherwise, then LA could not have been the start city. No permits--no filming.
So how did teams get to LAX and why were they seen in an Internationl Terminal?
The most obvious answer is that they were in transit thru LAX from somewhere else, and the start city has yet to be found.
This also fits with our earlier possible start dates of July 1-3, and new reports of team sightings in Belize.
For completeness sake, I can also tell you that Boston, Baltimore, Annapolis, Chicago and Houston and Houston airport have all been pretty much ruled out as well, although it is important to remember that that refers to within the city limits of those cities ONLY.
