Send 'em up!

The articles that I post is because I think they are of interest to someone else. By posting these articles doesn’t mean that I necessarily agree with every—or any—opinion in the posted article.

Conversation overheard 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 Defense Radar:
  Unknown aircraft you are in Iranian airspace.  Identify yourself.
  This is a United States aircraft.  I am in Iraqi airspace.
Air Defense Radar:
  You are in Iranian airspace. If you do not depart our airspace we will launch interceptor aircraft!
  This is a United States Marine Corps FA-18 fighter.  Send 'em up, I'll wait!
Air Defense Radar:
  (no silence)
