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





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

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

Air Defense Site: '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 Site: ( .... total silence)

Do they still have the F-14's we sold them with no spare parts to keep them flying? That was sweet.

No Spare Parts PLUS Our Guys Pulled Key Modules Upon Leaving. They'll Nnever Fly Again.

It's Like A Dealership Lot Full Of ZR1's, With No ECM/TCM's. Going Nowhere Fast.

Although that's not one in the picture, that Marine was probably flying a Super Hornet, and they are A TRUE CAN OF WHOOP ASS!!

See the difference in size. The Super Hornet is the closest.

Tony,

A 40oz CAN OF WHOOP ASS. EA-18. We call it a G-model. Same basic configuration as a F-model with enhanced jamming capability. She is a beautiful piece of equipment.

oh yeah, and hats off to China for their entirely original stealth aircraft that looks nothing like the F-22 Raptor. They could have at least copied the F-23 that lost out to the 22 back in the early/mid 90's.

Why would they want to copy the loser.

I'd take a 16 or 15 before an 18

The F-23 was actually more advanced and would have cost more per copy. I think it looked a lot cooler too.

I meant I would take the F15 F16 over the F18. I have seen the F22 fly at an airshow and that bitch is BAAAAAD!

I think the 15 is cool, and the 16 was actually the most maneuverable aircraft we had until the Raptor came along. I live very close to Langley AFB (first base to get outfitted with Raptors), and I worked on that base for two years, so I see Raptors flying almost everyday, and yes they are BAD ASS. They can do some wicked shit.

However, do not mistake the first version of the Hornet, as being the same bird as the Super Hornet because it's not. It's a COMPLETELY different beast.

The bottom line is, there are very few aircraft out the ANYWHERE that can or even want to tangle with ANY OF THEM!!:2cents:
