US Navy pilot to face stiff action over dick move in the sky

If you were in Okanogan County, Washington and happened to look up in the sky on Thursday morning, you would have gotten a rude awakening.

A US navy pilot flying a F/A-18 Growler decidedly put his aircraft manouvering prowess to good use – by scribbling a penis in the sky.

Some may have applauded him for his stroke of genius, but the US Navy isn’t about to go soft on him.

According to The Register, the pilot flew out of the Whidbey Island air station on Thursday morning.

The navy has since grounded the aircrew involved and is “conducting a thorough investigation.”
In a statement on Friday, a navy spokesperson said:
US Navy air crew, flying an F/A-18 Growler (Electronic Attack Aircraft) assigned to Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ) 130 based at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, Wash., flew an air pattern over Okanogan County, Wash., on Thursday, Nov. 16, that left a condensed air trail resembling an obscene image to observers on the ground.
The Officers and Sailors of the United States Navy are professionals, held to the highest standards, while serving our nation with pride around world.

Theactions of this aircrew were wholly unacceptable and antithetical to Navy core values. We have grounded the aircrew and are conducting a thorough investigation – and we will hold those responsible accountable for their actions. The Navy apologizes for this irresponsible and immature act.
The Navy apologizes to anyone who was offended by this unacceptable action.

An investigation into this flight will be conducted and if appropriate, the aviator(s) responsible will be held accountable.
