Hollywood sign from an airplane window

The Hollywood sign from an airplane window, care of I.am.Vagabond.

Three fun facts about the sign:

  • The letters stand 45 feet tall and 31 to 39 feet wide.
  • In the 1940s, the sign’s caretaker crashed into the letter “H” while driving drunk, destroying it.
  • In January 1976, following the passage of a state law decriminalizing marijuana, vandals altered the sign to read “HOLLYWeeD”.
