While the aircrew have not yet been identified, a senior officer commented: “The American people rightfully expect that those who wear the Wings of Gold exhibit a level of maturity commensurate with the missions and aircraft with which they’ve been entrusted.”
In a statement released by the service, it was revealed: “Naval aviation continually strives to foster an environment of dignity and respect.”
“Sophomoric and immature antics of a sexual nature have no place in Naval aviation today.”
