Plane's flight path spelled out 'make beer not war'

By Henry Jones, PA & Matt Jackson

A plane spelt out 'make beer not war' in its flight path. The light aircraft was spotted over Poland earlier tonight (May 14).

The aircraft set off from the city of Poznan in west-central Poland. The two seater plane initially turned to the west before beginning to trace the words.

The meticulous 40-mile-wide phrase took almost four hours to complete. The plane then headed back to Poznan this evening.

The aircraft that carried out the flight is part of the fleet at Smart Aviation, a flight school based in Poznan. The PA news agency has contacted Smart Aviation for comment.

Thousands of users were active on flightradar24.com to track the flight, which comes at a time of heightened tension across Europe, following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
