Cocky US pilot draws penis in sky, Navy not amused


LOS ANGELES: The US Navy was left red-faced Friday (Saturday in Manila) after a pilot painted an enormous outline of a penis in the sky using the condensation trails from his multi-million-dollar warplane. Residents of the town of Okanogan, in the western state of Washington, had been stunned to see the EA-18G Growler jet—a variant of the workhorse F/A-18 warplane—scrawling the phallic symbol on Thursday, and several photos quickly circulated online. Navy officials acknowledged one of their crews was behind the stunt, saying the aircraft “left a condensed air trail resembling an obscene image to observers on the ground.” Lieutenant Commander Leslie Hubbell, a spokeswoman for the Naval Air Station on Whidbey Island, said in a statement that the Navy “have grounded the aircrew and are conducting a thorough investigation” she added that “Navy apologizes for this irresponsible and immature act,” she added.
