Pilot’s hilarious sky-scribble is leaving the internet in chunks
In recent years there have been several instances where pilots have used flight paths to show off their creative flair while flying. Now a pilot in Bellingham, Canada, left netizens in splits after using their trajectory to hilariously create a middle finger in the sky on Monday.
An image of the sky doodle first appeared on Flight Aware, a website that tracks the journey of almost every aircraft. This flight map was also shared on Reddit in a post titled “Looks like a Survey Pilot’s last day today.”
Ever since they were shared, netizens have marveled at the pilot’s craftsmanship and level of detail.
On Reddit, one user wrote, “As a former survey pilot, this is definitely something that would happen at the end of a contract.” Another said, “It’s a fantastic tactical maneuver.”
A third added: “Looks like he was about to land and was stopped by air traffic control so he drew them a middle finger. If you look he originally wanted to land then flew back,” while a fourth commented, “An aviation legend.”

Corresponding news week, the plane departed from Bellingham International Airport in Washington State. In less than seven hours, the pilot flew a series of tight, back-and-forth zigzag courses over northern airspace across Whatcom County and British Columbia before returning and landing at Bellingham.
The pilot’s identity was not released, but the aircraft’s tail number – N59906 – showed it was a Piper Navajo Twin-Piston (PA31) registered to Marc, Inc. in Mississippi, which is North America’s largest provider of contract aircraft and flight crew for airborne geographic information systems (GIS), survey and surveillance projects.
