    This is an old news. It just shows the tremendous capabilities of F-22. Wondering if it could repeat the same thing with our LCA or any other fighter??

    I am not an expert but it just seems pretty scary if your enemy can sneak under or behind you from right before your eyes and in this case you cant see him which makes the matter hell of a lot worse. F4 are quite obsolete but they too must have some kind of radar ??

    F-22 nearr Iran? Where did it take off from? I know that F-22s have been to Japan, but not based there. I doubt if any are based in Germany. I would have thought that none are based in the west Asia. So did this F 22 fly in supercruisin' from the US of A to scare an F 4 off a drone?

    How does an F-22 pilot call an Iranian F-4 that he has just buzzed and tell him that he really ought to go home? He has no idea what frequency the Iranian pilot is set to receive - so he has to broadcast on some open channel that everyone is supposed to keep open and then make an announcement. How would the F-4 pilot know that he is being addressed? The F-22 pilot would have to specifically say that he is calling the Iranian F-4. How would the F-22 pilot know that the Iranian pilot has got the message? The Iranian would have to acknowledge that he has heard what is being said. Would they have spoken in English? Or Farsi?

    This story sounds like the usual myth building that occurs - stories that are neither confirmed nor denied. The US is master of these games. Funnily enough, Pakistan plays this game better than India.

    An interceptor may attempt to establish communications via standard ICAO signals. In time-critical situations where the interceptor is seeking an immediate response from the intercepted aircraft or if the intercepted aircraft remains non-compliant to instruction, the interceptor pilot may initiate a divert maneuver. In this maneuver, the interceptor flies across the intercepted aircraft's flight path (minimum 500 feet separation and commencing from slightly below the intercepted aircraft altitude) in the general direction the intercepted aircraft is expected to turn. The interceptor will rock its wings (daytime) or flash external lights/select afterburners (night) while crossing the intercepted aircraft's flight path. The interceptor will roll out in the direction the intercepted aircraft is expected to turn before returning to verify the aircraft of interest is complying. The intercepted aircraft is expected to execute an immediate turn to the direction of the intercepting aircraft. If the aircraft of interest does not comply, the interceptor may conduct a second climbing turn across the intercepted aircraft's flight path (minimum 500 feet separation and commencing from slightly below the intercepted aircraft altitude) while expending flares as a warning signal to the intercepted aircraft to comply immediately and to turn in the direction indicated and to leave the area. The interceptor is responsible to maintain safe separation during these and all intercept maneuvers. Flight safety is paramount.

    Its an interesting point raised and this is what I found.

    This appears a bit confusing ot me.

    How did he had the Iranian aircraft frequency?

    When the Incident Happens I get the Classified news from My Friend

    According to him

    There are two F 14 Tom cats are deployed to intercept a Global HAWK UAV from the US patrolling along the Iranian Border

    Suddenly their Radars are Jammed and there is no Further Communications are established to the Base ..the Pilots saw a F 22 Raptor Roaring their Heads and almost in Collision Position. Then the F 14's are escaped from the Field

    But The Italian Piolt David Cenciotti Said in his Blog Aviationsist ..There are only one F4 phantoms are deployed to intercept a UAV

    when intercepted we switch to international distress frequancy 121.5/243 MHz. We always keep a watch on this frequancy.

    Good question. If not PhotoShop, this may be the answer.

    Maybe why EPIRBs on vessels don't use that frequency anymore.
