Any act of kindness or togetherness goes a long way in upholding spirits and warming our hearts. While the world is battling a deadly pandemic, it is the need of the hour to forget all boundaries and shower support.
A Boeing aircraft has just that and a bit more. The Icelandair flight was travelling from Shanghai in China to Reykjavik in Iceland. Carrying medical supplies from the country, it drew a heart shape over the Icelandic capital city Reykjavik.
