We think this pilot was trying to tell us something…

We guess this pilot had nothing better to do.

A pilot in Perth, Australia flew his plane to spell out the words “I’m bored,” as per a FlightAware map tracking the journey. Of course, he also drew two dicks in the sky.

The Diamond Star plane left Parafield Airport at 8:53 a.m. local time, and took quite the extended route before landing at the same airport three hours later.

As reported by PerthNow, the pilot in question is thought to be a newly-qualified instructor, and was tasked with breaking in the plane’s engine so that it could be used as an instructional aircraft. 

A FlightAware spokesperson told Mashable that pilots “occasionally like to get creative and trace words or other images in the sky while they fly. “

“Most of the time it’s fun and a cool demonstration of talent. In the past, we’ve seen some really fun proposals, birthday messages and even a Texas Longhorn that appeared after a contentious UT football game,” the spokesperson said.

We can also rattle off a few examples of this happening, such as Marines who drew a penis in the sky, another penis drawn over Florida, and in a more wholesome example, someone writing “hello” in German skies.
