Air Force had no intention of flying penis model: US military

A US Air Force pilot has drawn a flight model that appears to resemble a penis – in what the military says was a total accident.

Aircraft enthusiasts noticed that the KC-135 aerial tanker flying near a Russian base in Syria on Wednesday left a strange pattern on flight radars.

The plane made a tight loop in the waters between Cyrus and Lebanon, creating an oval shape before making two smaller circles at the base and looking back a second time at the top of the oval, according to FlightRadar24.

The seemingly phallic shape resulting from the sporadic trajectory was unintentional, a USAFE spokesperson told the military newspaper Task & Purpose.

“The KC-135 Stratotanker (RAKE71) operating in the Eastern Mediterranean adjusted between several different flight paths during the mission,” Captain Ryan Goss said in a statement.

“Although these adjustments and movements appear to create a vulgar outline, the pilots or the unit had no intention of doing so. As we continue to review this, USAFE-AFAFRICA, AMC [Air Mobility Command] and the USAF will continue to maintain the highest standards of professionalism and airmanship.

Air Force Col. Damien Pickart, the Air Mobility Command’s top spokesman, told the newspaper that the agency was asking the crew for details about the incident, but doesn’t believe they have. acted inappropriately.

Despite the miliary’s objections, this wouldn’t be the first time its members have pulled off aerial, genital-themed pranks.

In 2017, two Navy aviators decided to use the jet’s contrails to draw a giant “celestial penis” over central Washington because it would be “awesome”.

Navy officials initially recommended a disciplinary hearing for the pilots, but ended up recommending “non-punitive letters of instruction.”
