What happens when you put a bored pilot in a plane? The answer is simple- he will create art in the sky with his plane. I know this is not an obvious answer, but it is seemingly becoming a trend among the artistically inclined pilots nowadays. With the world of art having no boundaries, there is not much surprise in all these new kinds of art. But then, the artwork here will make your jaw drop! Trust us.
1 The Latest Art in the Sky
Recently an anonymous pilot of a private plane took a detour from the usual route to create amazing art in the sky. The unknown pilot was flying a Robin DR-400/180 Regent that started out from an airport near Hamburg. The destination of the flight was a small island in the North Sea name Heligoland. The pilot chose to ditch the simplest route and take some twists and turns along the way to sketch a ginormous airplane in the sky!
2 How the Art in Sky was captured?
The creatively detoured art in the sky was captured by a popular plane tracking site called Flightradar24. The site immediately tweeted how creating art with the help of Flighradar24 has literally reached new heights.
3 The Mysterious Artist in the Sky
Well, that is, apart from God, who chooses to paint the sky pink, blue and purple from time to time! Though not that colorful, being able to draw with an airplane requires hell of a talent, not to mention expertise. Though the name of the pilot is still unknown, he or she surely has a great sense of humor as the pilot later returned to put his/her signature next to the airplane’s art in the sky.
4 What Flightradar24 has to Say?
It seems like this is not the first time the flight tracking site has witnessed pilots creating art in the sky. But it was surely the first time that they saw an airplane drawing the image of an airplane in the sky, and the site made it a point to update this information in its blog post. It took the pilot/artist almost 40 minutes to draw the airplane and another 20 minutes to add the signature along with it.
5 Other instances of similar Art in the Sky
There have been previous instances when the pilots chose to take a detour and explored more creative dimensions in the sky. Recently, a pilot took a detour to create a heart in the sky. Another quirky pilot chose to take so many detours that he managed to draw a flower with so many petals on it- it surely must have taken a dizzy ride to create that complicated art.
Gone are the days when a flight merely meant taking off and reaching the destination. It looks like pilots too have a creative and humorous side and they are all set to take their interests to new levels.
