While tensions remain high over the crisis in Ukraine, a pilot in Moldova used an unusual method to tell the world to "relax", using his aircraft to spread the message this afternoon.

Flying over Moldovan airspace, close to the border with Ukraine, the aircraft made a series of calculated turns to leave a tracking-path that spelled out the word "relax".

Aircraft tracking website FlightRadar captured the pilot's calligraphy, which looped round the country's capital Chisinau.
