The sight is almost magical
-- a tiny airplane writing gigantic
messages across the sky. This is skywriting. It began in England in 1922
when a British war ace skywrote the worlds first aerial message.
Captain Allen J. Cameron, an American pilot, brought the art to the United
States in the autumn of 1922 and wrote "Hello U.S.A." over New
Skywriting is an aviation technique created by vaporizing fluid
in the plane's exhaust system to form letters in the sky. Each letter is about one-mile high, and the average message is written across a 10-mile slate of sky. On a clear day, each letter can be seen for up to 30 miles in any
direction from the ground. Thats over 2,800 square miles for each
message written. As the wind drifts the skywritten words, even
more people see them!

effective way to get YOUR MESSAGE in front of thousands of
