It’s a blast: Military helicopter pilot creates penis-shaped flight plan over Malta… but officials insist it wasn’t deliberate
- The phallic design was seen on Sunday evening in northern Malta
- A military helicopter AW139 created the flight path over the island of Comino

A military helicopter created a penis-shaped flight pattern over Malta, but officials insist the stunt was not deliberate.
The phallic flight pattern took place above the skies of Comino Island, and it managed to turn several heads in the aviation industry.
An Armed Forces of Malta (AFM) helicopter was responsible for the questionable route, but was first spotted by popular website flightradar24.com.
The website tweeted a screenshot of the helicopter’s unusual flight path with the caption: “Meanwhile in Malta…”

The helicopter that allegedly created the image is an AW139, an AFM aircraft which, according to the manufacturer’s website, is “a helicopter that can adapt to multiple missions” and offers “superior performance”.
Many assumed the cheeky stunt had been a deliberate effort, as flight number AS1429 included a series of intentional stares.
However, the AFM told The Times of Malta that the flight diagram, shared by flightradar24, was “printed out of context”.
A spokesperson said: “The flight track shown was segmented as the helicopter was flying low and did not show the completed flight path.”
