Officials from the Naval Air Station Whidbey Island in Oak Harbor, Washington confirmed that one of their aircrafts was responsible for a large, phallic-looking skydrawing spotted earlier this week.
The penile rendering was first noticed by a concerned mother who reported it to her local news station, saying she was “upset” about having to explain the drawings to her young children.
The atmospheric penis was drawn by U.S. Navy pilots using an EA-18G Growler with Electronic Attack Squadron 130, also known as “The Zappers.”
“The Navy holds its aircrew to the highest standards and we find this absolutely unacceptable, of zero training value and we are holding the crew accountable,” the Navy told KREM.
Zero training value? That looks really hard to pull off to us!
Federal Aviation Administration officials said there wasn’t much they could about the drawing as it didn’t pose a safety risk and it “cannot police morality.”
