Default That's Okay, I'll Wait

According to an Air Force pilot in addition to communicating with the local Air Traffic Control facility, all aircraft in the Persian Gulf AOR are required to give the Iranian Air Defence Radar (military) a ten minute 'heads up' if they will be transiting 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 VHF Guard (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 unknown), 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 Air Force F-22 fighter, send'em up, I'll wait".

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

LMAO Bring it! Those F-22's are mean birds!
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
-John Stewart Mill

Loved It !!!

Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the outcome of the vote.
