Send em up

I love this!.. I thought some of you would especially appreciate this one!
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 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...

"�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)

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."

Pretty good but he didn't give his call sign, transponder code, points of origin, and destination.

The world is full of people who talk, talk ,talk. It's nice to swing the stick once and a while, just to wake them up.
