Virgin Atlantic marked Valentine’s Day by flying one of its planes in the shape of a heart.
The aircraft, named ‘HonkyTonk Woman’, departed Gatwick Airport at 11am.
Captain JJ Burrows, director of aircraft operations for Virgin Atlantic, said: “We had a training flight planned for 14 February, and when we realised it was Valentine’s Day we decided to have a little fun.
“Our special heart-shaped flight took off from Gatwick, travelling across the south of England and over the Cornish coast to form a heart shape at around 30,000ft.”
Virgin Atlantic is holding a special one-day sale to mark the occasion, with savings of up to £279 per person on selected Premium Economy seats.
In January, aviations fans were delighted by the skills of an artistic pilot who appeared to draw a plane in the sky.
While in November US Navy officials admitted one of their planes was used to create a giant penis in the clouds.
