Radio conversation

This is supposed to be the transcript of an actual radio conversation between a US naval ship and Canadian authorities off the coast of Newfoundland in October 1995. The Radio conversation was released by the Chief of Naval Operations on Oct. 10, 1995.

– Please change your direction 15 degrees to the North to avoid a collision.

– Recommend you divert YOUR course 15 degrees to South to avoid a collision.

– This is the Captain of a US Navy ship. I say again, divert YOUR course.

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

THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER ENTERPRISE, WE ARE A LARGE WARSHIP OF THE US NAVY. DIVERT YOUR COURSE NOW!

– This is a lighthouse. Your call.
