Radio conversation
 
This was a conversation between a US naval ship and Canadian


authorities off the coast of Newfoundland in late 1995.





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





Americans: This is the Aircraft Carrier US LINCOLN, the second


largest ship in the United States Atlantic Fleet. We


are accompanied with three Destroyers, three Cruisers


and numerous support vessels. I DEMAND that you change


your course 15 degrees north. I say again, 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.
