18 Of The Funniest Airplane Skywriting Ever To Take Flight

List RulesUpvote the messages worth burning your retinas for.

Planes are not known for their cleanliness, but one aspect of that untidiness does lend itself to an entertaining, if useless, feature: skywritten messages. If someone has taken the time, money, and effort to make a funny airplane message, they usually have something pretty damn important to say. Or not.

Below you will find examples of funny skywriting and the most bizarre text messages ever seen in the sky. Whether they were pilots who had a little too much fun or some random dude who just wanted to see the word "hooters" written in the sky, these are the funniest skywriting messages ever. One might even go as far as saying these skywriting banners really were completely unnecessary and they'd be absolutely right. While it’s impossible to verify that all of these photos are real, don’t you want to live in a world where they are?
