Flightradar24 data showed the image for several hours on Russian radar, making it impossible to ignore.

Completely juvenile - and funny as hell.

In a move that was hard for the Russians to ignore, an American military aircraft crew pulled off a ballsy maneuver near Moscow’s base in Syria on Tuesday night.

A KC-135 Stratotanker aerial refueling plane drew a “sky penis” in the vicinity of Syria’s Tartus — the Kremlin’s naval facility in the Mediterranean — according to a POLITICO analysis of Flightradar24 data, as first reported by La Repubblica.

It is not known whether the plane took off from Crete to refuel fighter planes, or if the pilots simply had one job: taking the piss out of the Russian ground crew.

The Mediterranean was the subject of a close encounter between three U.S. Navy planes and Russian aircraft back in February, in the days before Russia launched its full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

The US Air Force later issued a statement to saying the unusual flight path was not intentional. Mmhmm.
