The message in the sky over Cambridge explained





A cross, an equals sign and a heart, symbolising ‘Jesus is love’, appeared over Cambridge on Good Friday (April 7).

The C3 Church in Cambridge commissioned skyart pilot Mark Jefferies to create the eye-catching image in the sky for the third year running.

Mark, who runs his own air display company (markjefferiesairdisplays.com), said: “I did one at Colchester, Bury St Edmunds and Cambridge – it was extremely difficult with the cloudy conditions and the new airspace above Cambridge limiting the height you can go to. It was not easy but I achieved it!”

Mark has now created the image three years in a row and notes: “It’s astounding how the weather has proved possible to do it because of the hit-and-miss weather in the UK. I mean look at today [Monday, April 10] for example and Sunday [April 9].

“It started perfect on Friday morning, clear blue skies, but the time had to be when the client wanted it so I just had to wait and hope for the best.”
