The Funniest Cockpit Audio Excerpts From The Sky Penis Incident


Here’s the official audio from the sky penis incident. As you can hear, the two pilots from the Navy’s esteemed Electronic Attack Squadron 130, had a great time executing the stunt.

The entire sky penis audio recording is hilarious. But here ate the funniest moments:

  1. Co-Pilot: “Draw a giant penis. That would be awesome.”
  2. Pilot: “What did you do on your flight? Oh, we turned dinosaurs into sky penises.”
  3. Co-Pilot: “You should totally try to draw a penis.”
  4. Pilot: “I could definitely draw one, that would be easy.”
  5. Pilot: “I could basically draw a figure eight and turn around and come back. I’m gonna go down, grab some speed and hopefully get out of the contrail layer so they’re not connected to each other.”
  6. Pilot: “Dude, that would be so funny.”
  7. Pilot: “Airliner’s coming back on their way into Seattle, just this big f*ing, giant penis.”
  8. Co-Pilot: “We could almost draw a vein in the middle of it too.”
  9. Pilot: “Balls are going to be a little lopsided.”
  10. Pilot: “Balls are complete. I just gotta navigate a little bit over here for the shaft.”
  11. Co-Pilot: “Which way is the shaft going?”
  12. Pilot: “The shaft will go to the left.”
  13. Co-Pilot: “It’s gonna be a wide shaft.”
  14. Pilot: “I don’t wanna make it just like 3 balls.”
  15. Co-Pilot: “Oh, the head of that penis is going to be thick.”

Official Apology For US Navy Sky Penis Stunt

It didn’t take long for the sky penis to go from a social media trend to the lead story on the local news. The incident immediately put the Navy into damage control mode. A spokesperson at┬áNaval Air Station Whidbey Island issued this apology to the public.

“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.”

Why Did They Do It?

According to the Navy Times, the Navy pilots drew the sky penis just for their own amusement. They didn’t even think it would be visible from the ground.

According to their commanding officers, the Top Gun pilots are “whiz kids” and a highly respected part of the Navy. The two pilots have not been identified publicly.

What do you think? Was this just a silly stunt or should the pilots be grounded?
