Oh, Christmas plane: Airbus draws tree on flight tracker

For some people, limits know no bounds. And, as seen in the skies of two European countries, one pilot apparently lives by those rules.

Airbus A380, the world's largest passenger plane, felt especially festive Wednesday when it flew from Germany and Denmark, outlining a massive Christmas tree across the nations. While most pilots may not take on the challenge, this one even made sure to include ornaments.

A spokesperson for Airbus told The Telegraph that the airliner was a normal internal test flight, adding: "There are hundreds of these flights every year."



The outline had a flight path of 40,000 feet and was shared by flight tracker website, Flightradar24. The flight took off from Hamburg and took five hours to complete.
