Teenage Pilot Spells Out 'F*** Covid-19' With Plane

Teenage Pilot Spells Out 'F*** Covid-19' With Plane

With millions of people infected, tens of thousands killed, potentially trillions of dollars of economic loss, and life as we know it changed, it's understandable that people aren't fans of the coronavirus.

Why would anyone be happy with a deadly virus that has swept its way across the planet?

Well, one teenage pilot has dutifully put the world's anger and frustration at Covid-19 into the air...literally.

Flightradar24 picked up Greggor Hines' bizarre flight pattern as he took his dad's plane out for a spin over Washington state.

The 19-year-old university student managed to spell out 'F*** COVID 19' using his plane.

That is a very impressive effort.

The teenager has told the Washingtonian that he hadn't planned on writing his big middle finger to the pandemic when he set off on his journey.

He said: "We'd just got a new compass in the airplane, and I just had to check it out somehow."

While the bloke got his private piloting license last year (at the tender age of 18), Greggor has been in the cockpit with his dad since his was nine. He completed his first solo trip when he was just 16.

The 19-year-old is obviously keen to get into aviation in some way, shape or form once he finishes school however isn't seriously considering getting into the skywriting business.

He didn't think anyone would notice his 'FU' to the coronavirus until it was posted on social media by Flightradar24, who wrote on Twitter: "We're just going to leave this here."

Greggor certainly isn't the first to use an aircraft to spell out something on their mind.

One Australian pilot ended up using his time in the air to write 'I'm bored' and add a couple of dicks.

The pilot, from Flight Training Adelaide, was out testing a single propeller plane's new engine, setting off from Parafield Airport, in south Australia, when he decided to use his flight path to reveal an important message...of sorts.

Taking the plane out for a two-hour spin, the pilot spelt out 'I'm bored' as well as making two penis-shaped symbols, Adelaide Now.

Pine Pienaar, director of Flight Training Adelaide, told Adelaide Now: "Young instructors, what can you do?" Before adding that neither he nor the company condoned the unnamed pilot's actions.

The cheeky in-air message was only visible to those who were monitoring his live-progress - so no harm done. Right?
