Israeli airline EL AL creates ‘sky painting’ of a Boeing south west of Cyprus

Israeli airline EL AL on Sunday drew a sky painting of a Boeing 747 south west of Cyprus as a goodbye to its Boeing fleet.

The event was live broadcast.

According to the airline, after 48 years, during which EL AL has flown many 747 models, “the fleet’s activity has come to an end”.

It said EL AL was bidding farewell to the Boeing 747 Jumbo fleet, ‘Queen of the Skies’ “marking the end of a historic chapter in Israeli aviation”.

The last commercial flight of its 747 aircraft was Flight LY1747 from Rome to Tel Aviv, which departed from Italy on Sunday to “create an historic flight path” that created the shape of a Boeing aircraft.

The aircraft began to create the “painting” about two hours after takeoff when flying above Cyprus to the south west of Paphos.

The “sky painting” of the Boeing 747 was broadcast live throughout the world in cooperation with Flightradar24

EL AL’s Boeing fleet will ultimately be replaced by the new Dreamliner series.
