A somewhat phallic flight pattern has caused quite a stir in the aviation industry this week.

The shape over the sky of Comino in Malta was traced by an Armed Forces of Malta (AFM) helicopter.

A tweet from the popular website then brought the spectacle to the internet.

Her caption read: “Meanwhile in Malta…”

Online detectives soon traced the flight pattern to an AW139, a helicopter that “can adapt to multiple missions” and boasts “superior performance” to other aircraft.

Many assumed the brave stunt had been a deliberate effort from inside the plane’s cockpit.

However, the AFM told the Times of Malta that the flight pattern shared by flightradar24 had been “taken out of context”.

A spokesman said: “The flight trace displayed was segmented as the helicopter was flying at low altitude and did not show the completed trajectory.”

Flightradar24 shared a similar sight in November – after a couple of US Air Force pilots enjoyed themselves in the sky.

A rather thick-looking penis was “drawn” in the sky by a Russian naval facility in Syrian waters.

The cheeky creation was spotted near Tartus – the Kremlin’s naval base in the Mediterranean.

A flight expert told Times Now: “They were on a refueling mission, which is usually just a long oval that keeps repeating…. so they added the “balls”. No additional tax money spent.’
