Not the Onion.  Also, the crew involved are grounded.

Naval aviators are responsible for drawing a penis in the sky over Okanogan County, Wash., Navy officials said.

Residents of Okanogan County spotted the drawings in the sky Thursday, and some documented the phallic art on Twitter.

Officials with the Naval Air Station Whidbey Island in Oak Harbor, Wash., confirmed to KREM 2 News that Navy pilots were responsible for the drawings.

“The Navy holds its aircrew to the highest standards and we find this absolutely unacceptable, of zero training value and we are holding the crew accountable,” Navy officials said in a statement.

One mother who took photos of the skywriting and spoke to the TV station said she was upset at the prospect of explaining the image to her children.

The Federal Aviation Administration, when the station reached out for comment, said they're powerless to act unless the incident poses a safety risk. An official also said the agency "cannot police morality."

Mother had to explain what a penis is? I suppose she could just tell her kids
a. It's a penis; or
b. Gender is a social construct and they can pick F15 eagle as a gender.

. . . a penis in the sky over Okanogan County . . .

Since the northern boundary of Okanogan County borders British Columbia, I think it is important to know if the sky dong penetrated Canadian airspace.

As a drawing of a pecker goes, it makes a better ten gallon hat.
Apparently, a "USUAL SUSPECT"

“In peace there's nothing so becomes a man as modest stillness and humility; but when the blast of war blows in our ears, then imitate the action of the tiger; stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood, disguise fair nature with hard-favor'd rage.”

 Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and start slitting throats

Michael Ironside is 5'10", Tom Cruise is 5'7"

Ironside looks up to Cruise when he is giving him a dressing down. That box is easily 1 to 2' tall.

My mistake its James Tolkan. Who stands a 5'6" Esentially same height as Cruise. So that makes the box about a foot high.
