AUCKLANDOn May 15, Air New Zealand used the Boeing 787-9 to draw a huge Kiwi, New Zealand’s national symbol, in the sky.

The flight was part of a charity event for Colcare, an organization that works with Air New Zealand to help children with disabilities.

The flight was carried out with 50 children on board. The Boeing 787 took off from Christchurch, spent 2 hours and 41 minutes in the air, and draw a kiwi in the sky all the time. Flight data shared by RadarBox shows that everything was successful, and the NZ4376 flight eventually returned to the airport after a spectacular experience.



Air New Zealand CEO Greg Foran said the overall purpose of the idea was to give children who didn’t have the opportunity to fly the opportunity to discover how the whole thing feels on their own.

“ Today’s flight is really heartwarming. Some of these kids have never boarded a plane so we wanted them to experience the excitement of flying, and our team today is our little hero Pulled out all the stops to have a magical experience for,” He said.

Air New Zealand is not the first airline that comes up with the idea of ​​drawing something in the sky. Previously, Virgin Atlantic drew a heart on Valentine’s Day, but Qantas used a Boeing 747 to sketch a kangaroo in the sky before retiring from the aircraft.
