- The unnamed Pobeda airline crew are now under investigation for the stunt
- A video of the flight crew shows them flying in the penis-shaped flight pattern

- Dzyuba, Russia’s captain, was suspended after the video of him surfaced online
Two Russian pilots have allegedly carried out a penis-shaped flight pattern in a show of support for the captain of Russia’s national soccer team who was axed after a video of him performing a sex act surfaced online.
The unnamed crew of Pobeda airline are now under investigation for stunt which was reportedly done to back the Russian team captain Artem Dzyuba.
Dzyuba was suspended from international duty after footage showing him masturbating in bed was leaked online in a possible blackmail case being investigated by Russia’s security services.
A video has been shared that shows the alleged X-rated detour taken by flight DP407 en route from Moscow to Yekaterinburg on 11 November.

Artem Dzyuba, Russia’s national team captain who also plays for Zenit Saint Petersburg, was suspended after a video of him masturbating surfaced online
‘This was probably the way in which Pobeda captains expressed their support to Russian team captain Artem Dzyuba and showed their attitude to him being bullied,’ said a spokesman for the airline.
It was later confirmed that the Federal Air Transport Agency is investigating the ‘phallic protest’ over the city of Neftekamsk.
Reports suggest the crew requested permission for air manoeuvres ‘due to a need to check radio-navigation equipment’.
It is known that the scheduled flight with budget airline Pobeda – part of national flag carrier Aeroflot – landed 20 minutes late in Yekaterinburg.
Oleg Panteleev, executive director of Aviaport agency, told RBC news outlet that a check was being made on whether the crew had received permission for unusual manoeuvres around Neftekamsk and if so whether the turns in the sky threatened safety.
The probe will also check whether the crew broke the boundaries of ethical behaviour.
Separately, the FSB security service is investigating whether the 32-year-old Zenit St Petersburg player was blackmailed for $5 million over the compromising video (pictured) which was allegedly hacked from his mobile phone

Roman Gusarov, editor in chief of avid.ru, said: ‘You have got to be mad to perform manoeuvres like this.
‘These kinds of things get punished severely.’
He added that if true the stunt appeared ‘extremely dangerous because traffic density is high and air corridors are narrow.
The married player (pictured with Russian President Vladimir Putin in 2018 after Russia hosted the World Cup) reportedly met a hacker responsible for stealing the intimate footage but refused to pay the ransom
‘Moreover to draw something like this and then to admit to it means confessing to hooliganism.’
