Navy Disciplines Aviators For Drawing Body Part in Sky
Two Navy aviators who used their EA-18G Growler to draw a giant sky penis over Washington State have been disciplined, according to Navy officials.

Two lieutenants drew a penis in the skies over Washington state in their EA-18G Growler this week.
