Staff Sergeant
Send 'em Up!


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 Defense 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 of 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 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 . '

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!'

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

Thought this was interesting. Lou

Treat it like its real and your training will show in your skills! Its not what happens that counts, its how we react that defines who we are!!!
