Officials from the Naval Air Station Whidbey Island in Oak Harbor Washington report that one of their air-crafts may be responsible for some obscene skywriting back in November 2017.
Apparently some jokester with a fighter-pilots license thought it would be funny to draw a giant penis in the sky and Navy leadership are not amused.
A mom who lives in the area snapped photos of the giant phallic symbol and it quickly went viral on social media.
Since then the Navy has conducted a thorough probe into what caused the sky penis so they could get to the tip of this whole incident.
Flying as “Zapper 21,” the lieutenants responsible for the drawing took off from Whidbey with another jet at about noon that day, according to the investigation.
The squadron’s commanding officer would later praise the pilot as a shy introvert and “a ‘whiz kid’ who managed our training and readiness with higher efficiency and effectiveness than anyone else I have seen in a squadron,” according to the investigation.
His cockpit partner that day, an electronic warfare officer, or EWO, was “my best junior officer,” the CO noted.
What discipline the Zapper 21 duo faced remains unknown.
Citing privacy regulations, officials declined to provide such records, and all names are redacted in the report copy provided to Navy Times in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.
Zapper 21, if you're out there, we'd like to buy you a beer.
