In the end, it was more an exchange of polite radio messages than outright war. On one side of the strange aerial dance that took place Thursday in the dark morning skies above Pasadena were six state helicopters, carrying a load of malathion for a 53-square-mile assault on the Mediterranean fruit fly.
