Pilot Draws A Heart In The Sky To Thank Healthcare Workers For Their Efforts

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to engulf various regions of the world, healthcare workers continue to fight the COVID-19 with bravery and dedication. In order to express gratitude towards these heroes, a pilot from Iceland decided to say thank you in his own personal style! Using the sky as a canvas, the pilot drew a heart in the sky over two hospitals in the capital city of Iceland.

Pilot Draws Heart Over Iceland’s Hospitals

During his recent flight from Shanghai to Reykjavik, the pilot was helping his country import medical supplies from China. After a journey of nearly 5,600 miles, the pilot decided to draw a large heart with the plane’s flight path.

So before the flight landed, the pilot doodled a heart above two of the city’s hospitals. After this, the flight proceeded towards Keflavik International Airport.

The change in course reportedly added another nine minutes to the flight, as per SWNS. However, it was the pilot’s way of expressing gratitude and a heartfelt salute to the nation’s healthcare personnel.

The photo of the flight’s path has gone viral on social media, with many praising the pilot for his actions.

Currently, 1,789 cases of the novel coronavirus have been reported from Iceland. The viral disease has also claimed the lives of 10 people in the island nation to date.
