Using GPS trackers to create pictures of running routes is over.
A pilot in Germany has taken the "drawing by tracking your movement" concept to the next level by doodling an image of an airplane with... an airplane.
The unidentified pilot took off near Hamburg on Saturday, performed some agile aerobatics, then landed on the North Sea archipelago of Heligoland.
The Robin DR400/180 Regent aircraft's route was recorded on live flight tracking website Flightradar24. On the return flight to the German mainland, the plane appeared to script some letters, which the site's blog believes were the pilot's initials:
The stunt came three days after the same airplane drew a heart, perhaps as a test run:
"Not every flight is about getting from point A to B," Flightradar24 wrote on its blog. "Some flights are about the journey -- or in this case, about the image."
Using GPS apps to "draw" is not new, although doing it from the sky is still considered somewhat of a specialty.
Gene Lu, meanwhile, mapped out Star Wars images on his regular runs:
And a man in England even proposed to his girlfriend with a little help from his GPS tracking app.
