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


The conversation went like this...
Iranian Air Defence Radar:
'Unknown aircraft you are in Iranian airspace. Identify yourself.'
 Aircraft: 'This is a United States aircraft. I am in Iraqi airspace.'
 Air Defence 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 Defence Radar:(no response .... total silence)
