Festive Flight Path Forms Christmas Tree Over Germany

The holiday spirit was literally in the air on Wednesday when a pilot flying over Germany crafted an enormous Christmas Tree by way of the plane's flight path.

The incredible display came courtesy of an Airbus test flight and took five-and-a-half hours to complete.

In a testament to both the pilot's skills as well as his commitment to accuracy, he even managed to produce some pretty sharp-looking ornaments for the tree along the way by flying in circles at specific spots.

Fortunately, the test flight's path was approved by air traffic control in Germany, so the pilot won't wind up on Santa's naught list nor lose his job over the stunt.
