A mystery pilot used a private plane to draw a penis over Florida

HBO’s ‘Watchmen’ and the fantasy of competence
Does HBO's 'Watchmen' spend too much time trying to over-complicate the banality of evil?

The website and app Flightradar24 lets you view air traffic in real time, which is especially helpful as a monstrous festival like South by Southwest begins. Recently, though, someone took artistic license with the flight radar for a private aircraft flying over central Florida. 

It’s not clear if the artist was making a statement about Florida’s stance on climate change, doing a little freehand drawing exercise, or if the flight path actually was penis-shaped (which would be amazing), but as someone from Florida who has spent time in the hellscape of Lakeland, I salute this American hero.  


This also isn’t the first time a dick has appeared on the radar.

Hopefully the Flightradar24 artist and this Nike app genius collaborate on something. 

Editor’s note: The plane is apparently registered to Orlando-based B&M Aviation LLC, and we can only hope that’s an elaborate poop joke.
