USA vs Canada

Leave a comment

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.

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 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 UNDERTAKEN TO
ENSURE THE SAFETY OF THIS SHIP.

Canadians: We are a lighthouse. Your call!!!
