The US Air Force is claiming that the phallic-shaped flight path near a Russian base over Syria was unintentional, despite what folks wish to believe.
Last week, Twitter exploded after a flight track from FlightRadar24 revealed that a KC-135 Stratotanker was flying near the Russian-controlled Tartus airspace.
Several news publications jumped on the story, with Italian newspaper Repubblica stating that “the shape in fact is unequivocally that of a penis.”
The US Air Force, however, told Military.com that the matter was just a coincidence.
“We’re aware of the incident and are talking with the KC-135 crew to determine the details,” an Air Force spokesperson wrote in an email. “At this time, we do not believe the crew acted inappropriately, flying a refueling orbit consistent with requirements that met the needs of receiver aircraft.”
The KC-135 did not venture into Syrian airspace during its bizarre flight track.

A KC-135 Stratotanker refueling plane remained for almost two hours east of Cyprus on Tuesday, in front of the Syrian base of Tartus, a stronghold of Moscow.
