    was an email forwarded from son: don't know if it's true but seemed worth posting even if it isn't. Should make anyone in Britain smile:

    Conversation overheard on the VHF Guard (emergency) frequency 121.5 MHz while flying from Europe to Dubai ..

    Iranian Air Defence Site: 'Unknown aircraft you are in Iranian airspace. Identify yourself.'

    Aircraft: 'This is a British aircraft. I am in Iraqi airspace.'

    Air Defence Site: 'You are in Iranian airspace. If you do not depart our airspace we will launch interceptor aircraft!'

    Aircraft: 'This is a Royal Air Force GR4 Tornado fighter. Send 'em up, I'll wait!'

    Air Defence Site: ( .... total silence)

    I love the RAF

    I got the same email a few days ago, but it was the USAF and a F-16. Still funny though...

    how about this one
    US Navy vs Canada


    This is the transcript of the ACTUAL radio
    conversation of a U.S. naval ship with the Canadian
    authorities off the coast of Newfoundland October
    1995. Radio conversation released by the Chief of
    Naval Operations10-10-95.

    Canadians:
    Please divert your course 15 degrees to the South
    to avoid a collision.

    Americans:
    Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the
    North.

    Canadians:
    Negative. You will have to divert your course 15
    degrees to the South to avoid a collision.

    Americans:
    This is the Captain of a US Navy ship. I say again,
    divert YOUR course.

    Canadians:
    No. I say again, you divert YOUR course.

    Americans:
    THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER USS LINCOLN. THE
    SECOND LARGEST SHIP IN THE UNITED STATES ATLANTIC
    FLEET. WE ARE ACCOMPANIED BY THREE DESTROYERS, THREE
    CRUISERS AND NUMEROUS SUPPORT VESSELS. I DEMAND THAT
    YOU CHANGE YOUR COURSE 15 DEGREES NORTH, I SAY
    AGAIN,THAT'S ONE FIVE DEGREES NORTH, OR COUNTER
    MEASURES WILL BE UNDERTAKEN TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF
    THIS SHIP.

    Canadians:
    We are a lighthouse, your call.
