Navy officials are failing to see the funny side of the efforts of a mischievous pilot who drew enormous penises in the sky above Washington this week.
The unnamed pilot from Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, was lambasted by officials who have since apologized for the obscene display in Okanogan.
‘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,’ they said in a statement.
They described the act as ‘immature’ and ‘unethical’ and said that action was being taken to punish the crew responsible.
While they failed to see the humorous side, the internet exploded with appreciation for the pilot’s drawings.
The Navy has taken the blame for penis drawings which appeared in the sky above Okanogan, Washington, this week, saying it was one of their pilots who is to blame.
Some people in the town were offended by the illustration and reported it to local news stations including KREM.com.
Others saw the funny side as they watched the pilot complete their masterpiece.
‘After it made the circles at the bottom, I knew what it was and started laughing,’ one said to the SeattlePI.
‘It was pretty funny to see that …You don’t expect to see something like that.’
Twitter users shared their appreciation in their droves.
The Navy did not disclose what was being done to reprimand the pilot responsible.
