If you have been wandering around Washington state’s Okanogan County lately and thinking, wait, do I see a giant dick drawn in the sky? your eyes have not deceived you. And the United States Navy, specifically the naval air station at Whidbey Island, is very sorry about that.

Spokane’s KREM Channel 2 News has a collection of viewer-submitted pictures that you can peruse at leisure, but here’s a sample:

“Photos sent to KREM 2 by multiple sources show skydrawings of what some people are saying is male genitalia,” the station’s write-up read.

What some people are saying.

Anyway, the Navy released a brief statement to KREM 2 saying that they’re getting to the bottom of this: “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.” Meanwhile, the Federal Aviation Administration confirmed that they cannot do anything about phallic sky drawings unless there is some sort of proven safety risk. Which there is not.
