    Default US Navy

    This is the transcript of an ACTUAL radio conversation between a US Naval ship and the Canadians, off the coast of Newfoundland, Oct 95. Radio conversation released by the Chief of Naval Operations 10-10-95.
    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, to
    avoid a collision.
    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: Negative. I say again, You will have to divert your course.
    AMERICANS: THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER US 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 15 DEGREES NORTH, OR COUNTERMEASURES WILL BE UNDERTAKEN TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF THIS SHIP.
    .....wait for it
    CANADIANS: We are a lighthouse. Your call.
