    Airspace Vilation Protocol

    Post by Kahan on Wed Jan 14, 2009 10:11 am

    According to a Marine 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 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...

    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 Marine Corps FA-18 fighter. Send 'em up, I'll wait!'

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

    Semper Fi...

    The F18 is a bad ass. I saw a thing on the Military channel on it and all of the various wing and flaps positions are really cool. I wouldn't want to go up against one of those either. That targeting system is too much like a video game. Click target. Press 1 for missle, 2 for another other missle, 3 for yet another missle...

    It would suck to get blown up because someone clicked on something.
