Skywriting


Skywriting is a common process where a small aircraft would expel readable smoke in the sky where people can read from the ground.  The messages are usually of good gesture, greetings, sometime as advertisement or marriage proposal. 

Do you see skywrite often?
Can you spot the proposal in the sky ~ top left corner of this wooden horse?

At first I thought that was the face of a rhino...but turned out to be a horse. Rhinos have bigger bodies too..hehe.

I have never witnessed skywrite. But I have seen trails of white smoke (or it is cloud) left behind by an aircraft.

I guess the wooden horse isn't interesting enough c.f. a proposal in the sky :♦). Besides, I didn't see the skywrite when I took the photo.

Oops! I thought that was a dinosaur. My bad. LOL!

Awesome that you caught a sky-writing. It looks like a marriage proposal? A former colleague's daughter was proposed to thru a billboard along a busy highway on a Valentine's Day, I think. The story was in the local papers. We all knew about it only when he mentioned it at a dinner.

Happysurfer,
That must be an expensive proposal!

HappySurfer said...

I don't remember the exact amount but somewhere in the region of mid-five figure (RM) and that too for a limited few hours only. Lucky girl, eh?

Wooden horse? I thought it was made of rock!

Yes.. it's so romantic ya? I wonder if in Malaysia, the sky is so hazy at times.. sure cannot see one. Haha

Ayie said...

Only in movies Ai.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Ai Shiang said...

Happysurfer,
a bit excessive but sure is romantic and of course lucky too.

Horsoon,
thanks very much!

Gina, Ayie,
haha! I would have thought so too. But it is quite common here. We usually have no cloud in the sky. Perfect blue platform. Skywriting does appear every now and then.
