Plenty of onlookers from the ground in Okanogan County, Washington were amused by Thursday afternoon’s sky doodle.
A spokesman for Naval Airbase Whidbey Island airbase confirmed that the aircraft involved was one of its Boeing EA-18G Growlers.
The jet specialises in electronic warfare and is a specialized version of the two-seat F/A-18F Super Hornet.
Lt. Cmdr. Leslie Hubbell from Pacific Fleet Headquarters said that “From a Navy standpoint, we do hold our aircrew to the highest standards and this is absolutely unacceptable. It has zero training value and the aircrew is being held accountable.”
