A pilot flew a passenger plane over Lithuania in the shape of a 100 to mark a century since the country declared independence.

The internal flight left Palanga on the Baltic Sea coastline around 23h CET on Thursday night and arrived in the capital Vilnius shortly after midnight, according to data supplied by plane-tracking website flightradar24.com

Friday, February 16, marks 100 years since Lithuania declared independence after occupation by German troops during World War I.

The country became part of the Soviet Union during World War II and declared independence again in 1991.

A spokesman for flightradar24.com confirmed to Euronews that the flight — operated by Small Planet Airlines — was genuine.

We asked the Lithuanian airline for a comment but the company did not respond at the time of publication.
