A US Navy aircrew is responsible for drawing a masterpiece in the sky over the small town of Okanogan in central Washington on Thursday.
With their E/A-18 Growler jet, based out of NAS Whisbey Island, WA, the crew acted as a paintbrush on a canvas to produce a giant and unmistakeable penis and balls visible for miles and miles.

“After it made the circles at the bottom, I knew what it was and started laughing,” said witness Ramone Duran, in comments to The Spokesman-Review. “It was pretty funny to see that. You don’t expect to see something like that.”
The US Navy, however, was not nearly as amused.

“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,” said the Navy in a statement to local CBS affiliate KREM.
“The actions of this aircrew were wholly unacceptable and antithetical to Navy core values,” the Navy added. “The Navy apologizes for this irresponsible and immature act.”
We don’t know why the pilot risked his career to do this hilarious stunt, or the potential consequences for the crew. We’ll update this story as we learn more.
