Military Pilots Banned From Flying After Inappropriate Flight Pattern

An investigation into two military pilots is currently underway after they drew an inappropriate pattern in the sky last month over Southern California.

According to officials, the Marine Corps T-34C plane flew over the Salton Sea on October 23, creating a flight pattern that was tracked by Aircraft Spots, and later identified as a... Penis.

Yep! You heard that right. Grown adults... Flying an aircraft in the sky.... Drawing a penis.

The Marine Corps announced on Tuesday that the two military pilots associated with the incident have been banned from flying during the investigation.

“The Marines and Sailors of 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing will perform at the highest levels expected of professional war fighters, and uphold our core values of honor, courage and commitment,” Marine spokesman Josef Patterson said in a statement.

According to Patterson, the two aviators are still assisting with other duties, that don't involve flying, at the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego.

But this isn't the first time that pilots have been caught having a bit of fun in the skies...

Back in November of 2017, the U.S. Navy had to apologize after a military jew crew drew a penis in the sky above a rural area in Washington state.

The Marine Corps said that any further action in the incident will have to be determined after the investigation is completed.
