Whoever has been piloting this Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner all night, major props. Because we've never seen an airplane draw an airplane before.
Aviation enthusiasts on Twitter – including Flightradar24 – have been following the Boeing craft's flight path over the past 14 hours.
It took off from Seattle Wednesday at 3:38 p.m., flew across the northern border of the U.S. into Michigan, then started tracing an airplane with its flight path.
Here it is mid-drawing:
As of Thursday morning it's heading back to Seattle to land, taking the same path it came in on.
Here's the finished product:
"When you have to test your new @RollsRoyce engine for 17 hours, you might as well have a bit of fun," as Flightradar24 put it.
Boeing hasn't actually mentioned the Dreamliner's path on its social media accounts – but it's gotten a ton of attention through word of mouth. So it's a pretty clever publicity stunt in that sense.
