Navy acknowledges pilot drew male genitalia in the sky

In a weird incident, the US Navy was left embarrassed after a pilot painted an enormous outline of a penis in the sky using condensation trails from his warplane. The cheeky image - made by his fighter jet's exhaust system - appeared over Okanogan County, in Washington on Thursday.

The aircrew, whose actions were condemned for being "unacceptable" by the navy, have been grounded while an investigation into the incident is carried out.

"The Navy apologizes for this irresponsible and immature act", she added.

Images posted on social media showed the image stretching high over Okanogan County.

A spokesman for the airbase confirmed that the aircraft involved was one of its Boeing EA-18G Growlers. "It was pretty amusing to see that".

Every once in a while you may look up at the sky and see a plane, a blimp, clouds - nothing out of the ordinary. "A lot of people have been talking about it", he said.

"We will not tolerate this behavior", Hubbell said. "Sophomoric and immature antics of a sexual nature have no place in Naval aviation today", said Vice Admiral Mike Shoemaker of Naval Air Forces, U.S. Pacific Fleet. "It has zero training value and the aircrew is being held accountable".

Sullivan said residents who have endured the Growler noise think subtlety is not a Navy strong point. And while it's not immediately clear what this investigation will yield, it's evident that the Navy is taking it very seriously.
