Default very funny

All aircraft in the Persian Gulf AOR are required to give the Iranian Air Defense Radar (military) a ten minute 'heads up' if they will be transiting Iranian airspace.

A guy overheard this conversation on the VHF Guard (emergency) frequency 121.5 MHz while flying from Europe to Dubai. It's too good not to pass along.


The conversation went like this...

Iranian Air Defence Radar: 'Unknown aircraft you are in Iranian airspace. Identify yourself.'


Aircraft: 'This is a United States aircraft. I am in Iraqi airspace.'

Air Defence Radar:
'You are in Iranian airspace. If you do not depart our airspace we will launch interceptor aircraft!'

Aircraft:
'This is a United States Marine Corps FA-18 fighter. Send 'em up, I'll wait!'

Air Defence Radar:
(no response ... total silence)
