All artists occasionally agonize over their creative process, but rarely are we lucky enough to listen in on the process as a groundbreaking piece of work is being birthed into the world. But on Tuesday, we got a peek behind the curtain of the two hilariously creative Navy pilots responsible for drawing a giant penis in the sky a couple years ago, courtesy of newly unearthed cockpit recordings from that fateful afternoon. Back in , two Navy pilots noticed their jet's contrails were looking particularly big during a training flight over Washington and decided to delight themselves with a bit of aerial artwork. They ended up drawing a giant penis, which understandably caught the attention of folks on the ground.

The infamous sky penis of November 17, , hovering over the clouds of Washington, was a total mystery. On that fateful day, the puzzling dong appeared near Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, around 30 miles north of Seattle. And although the base accepted full responsibility for the phallic drawing in the sky, the public had no understanding of what had actually happened. How'd that big ol' boner get up there anyway?
