This is the transcript of an ACTUAL radio
conversation
of a US naval ship with Canadian authorities
off the coast of
Newfoundland in October 1995.
>>Radio conversation released by the Chief of
Naval Operations 10-10-95.

>>Americans: Please divert your course 15 degrees
to the North
to avoid a collision.

>>Canadians: Recommend you divert YOUR course 15
degrees
to the South to avoid collision.

>>Americans: This is the Captain of a US Navy
Ship. I say again,
divert YOUR course.

>>Canadians: No... I say again, you divert YOUR
course.

>>Americans: THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER USS
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, THAT'S ONE
FIVE
DEGREES NORTH, OR COUNTER-MEASURES WILL BE
UNDERTAKEN
TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF THIS SHIP.

>>Canadians: This is a lighthouse...your call. [I]
