What are the disgruntled pilots drawing in the sky: a penis near Sicily!
A Lufthansa pilot drew a penis in the sky after being asked to divert his flight to Malta. The pilot at the helm of the plane flying from Frankfurt to Catania on July 28 was unhappy at being asked to divert to Malta.

The plane then returned to its route and continued to fly to Malta, where it landed about 35 minutes later, Flightradar24 data shows.
It remains unclear if the pilot intentionally designed the shape or if it was a hold trajectory. Insider asked Lufthansa about this, but the airline avoided giving an official answer.
