Pilot Writes Message in the Sky: "Stay Home"
As COVID-19 spreads globally, with more and more nations urging their people to cut down on social interactions, some people are getting imaginative in how they spread the advice.
One such person is a pilot from Austria who took his little plane to spread a big message in the sky: "Stay home."
Two small words with a big meaning were shared across the Austrian sky early on Monday morning.
The pilot took to the skies for around thirty minutes, spending his time flying back and forth to create a pattern in the sky. This may have looked odd to anyone observing from the ground, however, once he landed back safely it was clear what he had been doing.
His pattern ended up giving an evident message: "Stay Home."

The words, that spanned from Austria and began to go into Hungary and Slovakia, are a clear effort at helping to remind people to remain at home as much as possible, and to minimize social interactions during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Efforts are being made around the world to try and curb the spread of COVID-19. Social distancing is one such method, however, some people, like this pilot, believe in spreading the word in their own manner, and it certainly grabbed some people's attention.
It's a great testament to this pilot's skills that he was able to trace the words precisely, even being able to underline them, as well as feeling a sense of duty to play his helpful part during this unique time on Earth. It's a good reminder that we need to work together now more than ever.
