Prankster pilots have been spotted creating a gigantic penis in the sky.
A passenger jet took sharp X-rated turns to trace out the phallus above Russia last Wednesday.
Flight data shows the cocky image traced out by the Pobeda Airlines flight DP407 while travelling from Moscow to Yekaterinburg.
The two unnamed pilots are under investigation accused of deliberately requesting a detour for the ballsy flightpath.
It appears they did so in support of a top Russian footballer who was recently suspended from the national side over a sex-act video.
It is unclear how many passengers were on board the airliner, the Times reports.
Captain Artem Dzyuba was dropped from the squad after a clip of him masturbating in bed was published online.
The 12-second clip went viral in Russia on November 7 but is believed to have originally filmed in December 2019.
A spokesman for Pobeda, which is owned by Aeroflot, Russia's flag carrier, said: "We don't know exactly what people might have seen in the trajectory of our plane's flight, but it's possible that our Pobeda pilots were in this way expressing support for the captain of the national team."
The unnamed pilots were said to have requested permission to perform a detour in order to "check radio-navigation equipment".

Some experts speculated that Pobeda might have faked the records for publicity.
"You would have to be mad to perform manoeuvres like this," said Roman Gusarov, the editor of the avid.ru aviation website.
Dzyuba, who has been capped 47 times by Russia, is seen naked in the bed during the clip with his right hand around his genital area.
Russia’s national team manager, Stanislav Cherchesov, has announced that Dzyuba has been left out of his side’s latest squad in order to "normalise the situation".
