A US Navy Pilot Drew A Giant Dick In The Sky

You have to admit it took balls.

Proving once and for all that not all heroes wear capes, the US Navy has confirmed that a giant penis that appeared in the sky over Washington State was drawn by one of its pilots on a training manoeuvre.

The huge sky-wang went viral on social media after several residents of the area took delighted photos of the lewd skywriting.

According to Buzzfeed News, the Navy has since apologised for the actions of their pilot.

“We hold our aircrews to the highest standards, and we do find this absolutely unacceptable,” said the Navy in a statement. “There was zero training value in that manoeuvre and we’re holding the crew accountable.”

The navy also confirmed that the crew have been grounded in response to the skywriting stunt. Killjoys.

“The American people rightfully expect that those who wear the Wings of Gold exhibit a level of maturity commensurate with the missions and aircraft with which they’ve been entrusted,” said Vice Admiral Mike Shoemaker. “Naval aviation continually strives to foster an environment of dignity and respect. Sophomoric and immature antics of a sexual nature have no place in Naval aviation today.”
