This picture of a plane looping in heart shapes over the Mediterranean is real - and the result of a celebratory flight after two Air Malta staff married.

The newly-wed pilot and cabin crew member were treated to the 100-minute flight after the ceremony.

"They were joined on the flight by family, friends and colleagues who had been at the wedding," a spokesperson for Air Malta told Sky News. "I think it was a very romantic flight. They flew close to Sicily, so they could see Mount Etna through the window."

When the plane returned the arrivals board at the airport showed the flight's status as 'JUST MARRIED'.

Flightradar24, which tracks air traffic in real time, dubbed it a "LoveFlight" but not everyone was as enthused, with one Twitter user saying "This Air Malta plane clearly loves dumping fuel."
