According to KREM, multiple sources reported seeing the skywritings of what some described as male genitalia.

One witness told KREM she was upset she might have to explain to her young children “what the drawings were.”
In a statement to KREM, a Navy spokesperson said, "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."
A spokesperson for the Federal Aviation Administration told KREM the agency "cannot police morality."
Okanogan County is located in Washington state along the Canada-U.S. border. As of the 2010 census, the population was 41,120.
