Conversation overheard by a civilian airliner on the VHF Guard (emergency) frequency 121.5 MHz flying from Europe to Dubai
Iranian Air Defence – “Unknown aircraft, you are in Iranian airspace, identify yourself”
Aircraft – “This is a British aircraft, I am in Iraqi airspace”
Iranian Air Defence – You are in Iranian airspace. If you do not depart our airspace we will launch interceptor aircraft”
