Subject: IRANIAN AIR DEFENSE

In addition to communicating with the local air traffic control
facility, aircraft are required to give the Iranian Air Defense Radar
(military) a ten minute heads up if they are going to transit Iranian
airspace. This is a common procedure for commercial aircraft and
involves giving them your call sign, transponder code, type aircraft,
and points of origin and destination.

I just flew with a guy who overheard this conversation on the emergency
frequency 121.5 MHz while flying from Europe to Dubai. It's too good not
to pass along. The conversation went something like this ...

Air Defense Radar: "Unknown aircraft at (location), you are in Iranian
airspace. Identify yourself."

Aircraft: "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!"

Aircraft: "This is a United States Marine fighter aircraft. Send 'em up."

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




Hilarious!

The lighthouse story is presumably a lot older.
