A local pilot flying out of Roanoke Municipal Airport, Virginia sent all moms out there a Mother’s Day greeting from the skies!
Rick Gillmore set a flight course Sunday morning that, on radar, spelled out the word “Mom” in the middle of a heart.
The flight was viewable in real-time using tracking data from radarbox.com by searching Gillmore’s tail number, N171PS. However, Gillmore said his journey was hard to track from the ground.
Gillmore took off just after 10 a.m. Sunday morning and returned just before noon.
He has used his airplane to create artwork every weekend this month. Gillmore said he started this tradition after social distancing took effect.
