This is an email I received today and thought this would be a great place to share it.

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.”

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

Iranian 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 Corps FA-18 fighter. Send ’em up, I’ll wait!”

Iranian Air Defense Radar: (no response…total silence)

God bless our troops!!!!!!
