Navy officials have condemned the actions of a pilot who took to the skies and drew a big phallus over a town in Washington.

According to The Spokesman-Review, residents of Okanogan, Washington, began reporting a skydrawing of male genitalia over the town, Thursday.
Naval Air Station Whidbey Island officials released a statement to KREM-TV confirming a Navy aircraft was to blame for the drawing.
Dog ownership linked to lower mortality
It turns out that dog owners had a 20 percent lower risk of dying compared to people who didn't have a dog . The study subjects were also all from Sweden, so results could be different in different countries.
A mother with young children was dismayed by the aerial phallic display, anxious that she may have to explain to her young children what the drawings were, according to KREM 2's report.
Several individuals also took to social media to post photos of the phallic drawing. We have grounded the aircrew and are conducting a thorough investigation - and we will hold those responsible accountable for their actions.
"After it made the circles at the bottom, I knew what it was and started laughing", said local resident Ramone Duran.
In a statement to the station, the Navy said the incident was "unacceptable". "The Navy apologizes for this irresponsible and immature act". An official at the FAA says the agency "cannot police morality", and there's nothing it can do about people defacing the sky with penises unless it poses a safety risk.
