Back in 2017, the US Navy was forced to apologize on behalf of some cheeky pilots who drew a giant penis in the sky with aircraft. The investigation on the matter is finally closed.
In an official report from the Navy Times, two junior officers from the ‘Zappers’ of Electronic Attack Squadron 130 have been named the culprits of the antic, committed while they were flying over Washington state on 16 November in 2017.
The pair apparently had some free time and decided to entertain themselves by drawing a giant phallus in the sky, but they never thought it would be visible from the ground level.
From audio obtained from the cockpit, the EWO is heard saying, “Draw a giant penis. That would be awesome.”
Encouraged by the EWO, the pilot replies, “I could definitely draw one, that would be easy. I could basically draw a figure eight and turn around and come back. I’m going to go down, grab some speed and hopefully get out of the contrail layer so they’re not connected to each other.”
In the process, there were some challenges, as the “balls” were a bit lopsided, to which the pilot alerted the EWO honestly. The pilot also assumed the penis drawing would have disappeared quickly.
However, that of course did not happen and any attempt to “eradicate the penis” according to reports was ineffective as the crew had to head back to base due to diminishing fuel. The image was already all over the internet at that point anyway.
