JOE BURBANK, ORLANDO SENTINEL
May 23, 2000
Gary Yelle reaches out to position the 1,000 pound E.T. face as it is installed on the Universal Studios Orlando billboard near Fairbanks Ave. on westbound I-4. The face, along with matching 550-pound fingers, has been reconditioned after several years of being weathered by the elements. The famous fiberglass figure was first installed at the I-4 location in early 1989.
