The U.S. Navy admitted Friday that one of its aircrafts was used to draw a giant penis in the sky over Washington state.
“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,” a representative with the Naval Air Station Whidbey Island told local news station KREM 2.
The news outlet received multiple photographs and phone calls from irate citizens who were offended by the genitalia over Okanogan County. One woman reportedly complained that she might have to explain the celestial penis drawing to her young children.
Others, however, were more amused and took to social media to share photos of the spectacle. “The most monumental thing to happen in omak. A penis in the sky,” wrote Twitter user @anahi_torres_, along with a photo.

When asked about the incident, the Federal Aviation Administration told the outlet that unless the aircraft’s act of drawing a penis poses a safety risk, there is nothing they can do about. “[We] cannot police morality,” the FAA rep said.
