Do a geico skytypers stylee timed release of smoke from nozzles on the airliner to write on the sky "we went this way ->" every 20 minutes.

Could also write stuff by passengers, like "Oh god, not the rice crackers again" or "Help, I'm being held captive in a smoke cannister factory."

       Possibly with timed tortoise chaff dispenser.   

       Obviously the tortoises get parachutes, and being slow moving are unlikely to move far from the path the plane took. It'd be a complete bugger with leopards, I can tell you.

       Or finally a use for fox hunters, simply attach the practice drag to the plane. Pack to follow via helicopters.

       A captain looking for a last flight practical joke could have fun with one of these (as long as there was someone else to pin the blame on).

       Anybody got the faintest idea what happens if I click on flag?   

       Anyway, the airline could use the writing to plug its company, create paranoia, by sky-writing "they're watching you, you know" or amusement (of a sort) by doing a big sudoku in the sky..

       Ahem, and Iain Banks.

       Closest I can think of is Zakalwe* in the crater making a distress sign out of bird poo or whatever.   

       *Well, not really Zakalwe.
