“This has gone from one of the quietest places on Earth to an airshow”

I spent six days this year chasing steelhead on the Olympic Peninsula. Every one of those days was interrupted by the roar of Navy Growler jets on maneuvers out of Whidby Island.

As those jets continue to shatter the calm of Washington’s Olympic Peninsula, a push for quiet grows.

And those Growler pilots have a sense of humor.

On November 16, 2017, the crew of a Navy EA-18G Growler jet delighted sixth graders, launched a meme, and pissed off prudes everywhere by drawing a penis in the sky with their engine exhaust over the state of Washington.
