Divert now --you are on a dangerous course!

Recommended Posts

US Naval Ship named  H.M.S TULLOCH.

This is a radio conversationof a US naval ship with Canadian authorities off the coast of Newfoundland.

Canadians: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the south to avoid a collision.

Americans: Recommend you divert your course 15degrees 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.

Canadians: And this is a lighthouse!
