Let's take a moment and give some appreciation to the Navy. They make up a branch of the military that can often be under-appreciated. Not only do they travel by sea, but they also have several skilled pilots among their ranks. Recently, one of these pilots caused a bit of a scene. However, it didn't cause the outrage of some other previous Navy scandals.
Yes, the Navy isn't just based on the water. They have several planes at their disposal. It isn't only the Air Force that can take to the sky. They have several tales of heroism, but perhaps none more heroic than the one you're about to witness.
Those aren't chem trails you're looking at. This has nothing to do with crazy U.S. government conspiracy theories. That's special smoke expelled from planes, which is used during skywriting. You've undoubtedly seen messages written by in the sky before. But likely none like this.
He wasn't given orders to do this. He acted of his own accord. The Navy was very concerned with stressing how much they didn't tell him to do this. Why were they so interested in distancing themselves from the pattern one of their pilots drew?
This isn't the first sighting of such shaped objects in the heavens. But unlike when it forms with clouds, this act was intentional. Even more hilarious, it wasn't the first time a Navy pilot had done this.
Of course, when you do something like this, it's going to get noticed. And being so close to a Naval base, everyone was quick to deduce the culprit. Reactions on social media began popping up immediately.
They stated they were embarrassed by the incident and apologized. The pilot responsible was grounded and banned from flying. Yes, this isn't something becoming of someone in a branch of the U.S. military.
