This Plane Used Its 5 Hour Flight Test to Draw a Giant Christmas Tree Over Germany


Maybe pilots drawing things in the sky is the new, hip thing. We recently saw a Navy pilot draw a huge dick in the sky in Washington. That was fun. And now we have the story of an Airbus doing this:

An Airbus A380 crew based in Hamburg took a 5-hour flight test and used it to draw a huge Christmas tree over Germany. The flight pattern clearly shows the pilots had only one design in mind on this trip.

Somebody was a little annoyed about the use of fuel, but the Flight Radar Twitter account reminded them that the test flight was going to happen anyway, so why not?

But most people just loved it.
