    This conversation was 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.'

    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)

    It's been making the rounds for at least a year or more. I have no idea if it's true or not and didn't bother with Snopes. I really don't care, I just like the story. :D

    121.5 frequency is the 911 for aircraft. Could be real considering the They got the freq right. Either way it's funny.
