Navy admits flight crew created phallic skydrawing over Washington town

GLASTONBURY, UNITED KINGDOM - OCTOBER 13: A mass of contrails left by jet aircraft are seen crossing the sky above the distinctive landmark of the historic 15th century St. Michael's Tower, built on Glastonbury Tor on October 13, 2009 near Glastonbury, England. Contrails, which is short for "condensation trails" or vapour trails, are the visible trails of condensed water vapour made by the exhaust gases from aircraft engines which as they cool in the surrounding air if cold enough, will leave a trail of comprised tiny ice crystals and because of the cold morning temperatures and atmospheric conditions the contrails are visible for much longer than usual. England, particularly in the south, is currently enjoying a spell of dry, fine weather, allowing the begining of the Autumn foliage colours - brought on by shortening daylight hours and cooler weather - to be fully appreciated.

OKANOGAN COUNTY, WA (WCMH) — The U.S. Navy says a flight crew who drew a phallic symbol over a Washington town will face punishment.

According to The Spokesman-Review, residents of Okanogan, Washington, began reporting a sky drawing of male genitalia over the town, Thursday.

“After it made the circles at the bottom, I knew what it was and started laughing,” Ramone Duran told The Spokesman-Review. “It was pretty funny to see that. You don’t expect to see something like that.”

However, other people didn’t think the sky drawing was amusing, with several complaints about the inappropriate nature of the symbol.

Navy officials released a statement to KREM stating: “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.”

The FAA told KREM that since the act didn’t pose a safety risk to residents, they will not be investigating and that they “cannot police morality.” provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
