Paint comes in handy for displaying Old Glory

SHARE Paint comes in handy for displaying Old Glory

Ron Devine couldn't find an American flag for sale, so he sprayed one on his front yard in Suffield, Conn.

Devine used paint — lots of it — and a homemade stencil to create a huge American flag. He said he wanted his display of patriotism to be visible from the flights taking off from Bradley International Airport.

The giant flag has caused a traffic jam on the ground. But neighbors aren't complaining about all the people driving by to see his version of Old Glory.
