The image appeared in the sky over the town of Omak, where it was noticed by residents on the ground.

"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," the Navy said in a statement to KREM in Washington.

The news station also reached out to the Federal Aviation Authority, where officials stated that the skydrawings posed no safety issues, and added that they could not be the "morality police."
