Lukas Air Force Base Claims Recent "Sky Penis" Was Accidental

Twitter's got some thoughts and feelings about the recent comment from Lukas Air Force Base, which says that the two F-35s did NOT mean to leave behind phallic contrails in a flight exercise on Tuesday. Basically, an "accidental sky penis" was too good to pass up on with the jokes and wordplay.

That was EXTREMELY close to a monumental fail. Can only imagine what kinds of words were being yelled in the pilot's seat at the time.

Supersonic ejection from a jet fighter can get pretty WILD. Listening to this guy talk about his experience navigating the speed of sound, is its own kind of exhilarating experience. Listen for yourself!

Back Side
Upon hearing that his flight was being led by a woman, a passenger left this note for pilot Carey Smith Steacy. She posted photos of the note to her Facebook page, along with this response:
To @David in 12E on my flight #463 from Calgary to Victoria today. It was my pleasure flying you safely to your destination. Thank you for the note you discreetly left me on your seat. You made sure to ask the flight attendants before we left if I had enough hours to be the Captain so safety is important to you, too. I respectfully disagree with your opinion that the "cockpit" (we now call it the flight deck as no c*cks [Ed: Obviously she did not censor herself] are required) is no place for a lady. In fact, there are no places that are not for ladies anymore. I have heard many comments from people throughout my 17 year career as a pilot. Most of them positive. Your note is, without a doubt, the funniest. It was a joke, right? RIGHT?? I thought, not. You were more than welcome to deplane when you heard I was a "fair lady." You have that right. Funny, we all, us humans, have the same rights in this great free country of ours. Now, back to my most important role, being a mother.
