The US Navy in Washington has admitted that one of their planes is responsible for drawing the figure of a phallus in the skies of Okanogan County. The skywriting has baffled the residents in the area, and many of them criticized the US Navy for such a ridiculous act.
The residents in Okanogan County, on Thursday, said that they were all literally shocked to see the figure of a male genitalia drawn intentionally in the skies above their town by a jet aircraft.
An intentionally ridiculous action
Images of the drawing soon went viral, and local residents started sharing it on social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook. As the pictures went viral on the Internet, the Naval Air Station in Whidbey Island that was responsibile for the act, has apologized.
"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 a top official of the Naval Air Station in Whidbey Island in a statement issued to KREM-TV.
As a response to this bizarre incident, Federal Aviation Administration officials said that they can do nothing on this unless it poses a threat to the safety of the skies. FAA officials also added that they are not supposed to do moral policing.
Soon after the drawing appeared on the skies, a mother who lives in the Okanogan County called up KREM-TV and stated that she is upset, as her children are asking what the drawings are. On the other hand, some people called the drawing hilarious, and they termed it as nothing but a funny act.
Lt. Cmdr. Leslie Hubbell of the Navy's Pacific Fleet headquarters in San Diego revealed that an investigation has been launched, but she refused to tell whether the navy officers involved in this incident will be discharged. Even though the investigation is going on, it is pretty unclear as to who will make the final decision on the disciplinary front.
