Iranian air space

borrowed from else where...

In addition to communicating with the local air traffic control facility, aircraft are required to give the Iranian Air Defense Radar (military) a ten minute "heads up" that 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 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 a United States aircraft. And I am in Iraqi ---not Iranian--- airspace."

Air Defense Radar: " You are in Iranian airspace . If you do not depart our airspace we will launch an interceptor aircraft!"

Aircraft: "This is a United States Marine FA-18 fighter jet...... Send 'em up!"

Iranian Air Defense Radar: (no response .. Total silence)

Too bad--nobody has been brave (foolish) enough to let any American pilots become aces in a number of years.:crazy_pilot:
