    I've heard variations of that story all over the place, so at this point I'm not sure I believe anyone who claims it's the "original" version...but it's a great story!

    This is the transcript of the ACTUAL radio conversation of a US Naval ship and the Canadians, off the coast of Newfoundland, Oct. 95. The radio conversation was released by the Chief of Naval Operations 10-10-95.

    Canadians: 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.

    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 divert YOUR course.

    Canadians: 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, I SAY AGAIN, THAT'S 15 DEGREES NORTH, OR COUNTERMEASURES WILL BE UNDERTAKEN TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF THIS SHIP.


    Canadians: We are a lighthouse. Your call.
