Foxtrot AlphaTech and news from the world of modern defense.  

Just in case you were wondering, it looks like the Navy will investigate you if you use their aircraft to draw colossal sky-penises. We know this because last month two Marine Corps pilots in a T-34C trainer aircraft drew a gigantic penis in the sky, and now they’re under investigation. It’s assumed that the investigation is because they’re in trouble as opposed to investigating how they managed to draw such a good penis with an airplane, but hopefully that will come up as well.

The sky-dong was noticed via radar plots of the training flight:

Maj. Josef Patterson, the spokesman for the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (MAW) in Miramar, California, told the Marine Corps Times that, regarding the the sky-wang situation, “an investigation is already under way.”

A press release from the 3rd MAW described the incident as:

A T-34C aircraft assigned to Marine Fighter Attack Training Squadron 101, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing, flew an irregular flight pattern over the Salton Sea that resembled a phallic image. An investigation to uncover the facts and circumstances surrounding the incident is ongoing. The aircrew’s chain of command are committed to maintaining an environment of professionalism, dignity and respect.

While the Navy maintains that drawing massive dicks in the sky has “no training value,” I’m just not so sure I believe that. There have to be many military applications that are at least enhanced with some powerful skycocks, right?

The crew of the T-34C have been grounded, but so far no other news of their punishment or medal ceremony, depending on how it all shakes out, has been revealed.

Also, don’t forget: this has happened before, and will happen again.
