Pilot Who Drew A D**k In The Sky Has Reportedly Been Grounded

People seemed to see the funny side of the incident in America last week when they saw a big dick and balls written in the sky. It's usually 'Marry Me' or something similarly specific but this was something that everyone could giggle about.

However, it appears that not everyone had a laugh with this escapade and, as a result, the pilot and the crew who were involved in the flight have been 'grounded'. Spokesperson for the Naval Air Station, Lieutenant Commander Leslie Hubbel, has said in the Daily Mail: "The actions of this aircrew were wholly unacceptable and antithetical to Navy core values.

"We have grounded the aircrew and are conducting a thorough investigation - and we will hold those responsible accountable for their actions.

"The Navy apologizes for this irresponsible and immature act."

That builds on a previous statement which was issued last week and read: "We find this absolutely unacceptable, of zero training value and we are holding the crew accountable."

The piss-funny incident was seen by dozens of people in Washington State, with many taking to social media to comment on the classic schoolboy banter.

One person wrote: "I have to say the pilot has a lot of skill to pull this off! Imagine flying a jet just under Mach 1 above 25,000ft, with the entire blue sky as your canvas and you nail it! Oh come on Navy brass have a laugh for Pete's sake! Promote the pilot to instructor or something."

While another person commented, saying: "This is fantastic! If the military makes it unacceptable to have any fun at all it will lose ALL its pilots to Delta, American & United. @USNavy calm down & worry about the important stuff."

There were a few people who sided with the navy, branding it 'childish'.

Vice Admiral Mike Shoemaker told Buzzfeed the act gives the navy a bad reputation. He said: "The American people rightfully expect that those who wear the Wings of Gold exhibit a level of maturity commensurate with the missions and aircraft with which they've been entrusted.

"Naval aviation continually strives to foster an environment of dignity and respect. Sophomoric and immature antics of a sexual nature have no place in Naval aviation today."

The pilot has still remained nameless and will probably want to keep it that way if he ever wants to get back up into the sky. If he gets his wings back, he might think twice about giving in to his urge to draw a massive phallic shape.
