Airbus Test Flight Spends Five Hours Drawing A Christmas Tree Over Germany

The holiday season is fast approaching, and to get us all in the mood, Airbus decided to give one of their test flight crews based in Hamburg, Germany, a pretty bizarre flight plan for their five hour test of an Airbus A380. 

Why did the flight plan have them going in circles? Because they were drawing a Christmas tree, as this flight data from air traffic website Flight Radar shows…

And yes, they did add a tree topper. Which just happens to cover the length of neighboring Denmark. 

One concern social media users seemed to have was the amount of carbon dioxide emitted drawing the tree. 

Flight Radar explained that the flight is actually a test for the Airbus A380, so it would be up in the air even if it wasn’t drawing a Christmas tree.

They also shared the flight data from a similar test flight across the United States, where the route drew a plane. 

In general, people on social media seemed to think it was pretty cool.

Indian Businessman Spends Daughter's $100,000 Wedding Budget On Homes For 90 People Instead

A rich businessman in India has reportedly used the $ 100,000 that he had intended to spend on his daughter’s wedding on building 90 small houses for the region’s poor.

Ajay Munot, a wealthy wholesale trader from the district of Aurangabad, India, set three criteria to distinguish who was eligible for a home on the two acres of land according to the Free Press Journal. They needed to be poor, live in a slum and not suffer from an addiction.

Each home is 12 by 20 square foot, has two windows and two doors and is fitted with lights and can fit a small family.

Munot’s newly-wedded daughter, Shreya, told ANI News that she was happy to forgo a big wedding to make something more permanent. She and her new husband handed over the keys to the new homeowners, calling it the “biggest gift for her wedding.”

Those who secured a home are already moving in, with one woman saying she was happy now that she and her family had easy access to water and electricity.
