KXLY4 viewers sent pictures of obscene images seen in the sky over Okanogan County.
The images show a skydrawing of what looks like male genitalia. KXLY4 reached out to the Naval Air Station Whidbey Island who confirmed one of their flight crews was responsible.
The U.S. Navy released this statement about the incident:
The Officers and Sailors of the United States Navy are professionals, held to the highest standards, while serving our nation with pride around world. 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.
The Navy apologizes to anyone who was offended by this unacceptable action.
An investigation into this flight will be conducted and if appropriate, the aviator(s) responsible will be held accountable.
