    The following is the transcript of an ACTUAL radio conversation that
    took
    place in October 1995, between a US Navy ship off the coast of England,
    and
    some British authority. The transcript was publicly released by the MoD
    in
    Aug 2000.
    
    BRITS: 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.
    
    BRITS: 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.
    
    BRITS: Negative. I say again. You will have to 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 15 DEGREES NORTH, OR
    COUNTER MEASURES WILL BE UNDERTAKEN TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF THIS SHIP.
    
    BRITS: We are a lighthouse. Now F... off.
