This is 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 the North to
avoid a collision.

Canadians: Recommend you 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 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 TAKEN TO ENSURE
THE SAFETY OF THIS SHIP.

Canadians: This is a lighthouse. Your call.
