The infamous “Sky Penis” episode that resulted in US Naval Aviators being punished has been thrust back into the news, with audio recordings from the flight.
The “Zappers” of Electronic Attack Squadron 130 were identified as the culprits in the great 2017 “Sky Penis” incident, which took place over the skies of Washington State.
During the flight, the E/A-18G Growler, known as Zapper 21 and carrying a pilot and an Electronic Warfare Officer, had free flight time at the end of an exercise.
Suddenly, the EWO suggested the phallus be drawn.
“Draw a giant sky penis,” he said. “That would be awesome.”
After a bit of back and forth, the pilot came up with a strategy to turn the EWO’s vision into a reality.
I’m going to basically draw a figure-eight, then turn around and come back,” the pilot said. “I’m gonna go down, grab some speed and hopefully get out of the contrail layer so they’re not connected to each other.”
It wasn’t long until friendly aircrews were cheering them on.
“Dude, that would be so funny,” one pilot said. “Airliners coming back on their way to Seattle… Just this big f**kin’ giant penis.”
“Balls are going to be a little lopsided,” the pilot lamented.
“They’re alright,” the wingman said.
“Balls are complete,” Zapper 21’s pilot responded. “I just gotta navigate a little bit over here for the shaft.”
Finally, the work was completed.
“You are a natural born artist,” Zapper 21’s EWO told the pilot.
“This is like, the biggest penis I have ever seen,” the pilot said.
“All the airliners are going to be seeing that in Seattle,” the EWO replied.
While Zapper 21 and their wingman attempted to cover up the drawing, it didn’t work out so well.
“Think I should do a pass, make sure it’s scribbled out?” the wingman said.
“I’ll tell you what, that’s a great penis right there,” the EWO laughed. “Make the Navy proud!”
Following the incident, the Navy ended up placing the aviators on a six-month probationary period and forced them to teach classes on sensitivity and changing culture.
