Hello all, long time no post.

Reuters reporting a US spy plane has invaded Iranian airspace and has been forced to land inside Iran.

End of the world coming right up folks!

Can you provide the link to where you got this information, I'd love to see the report and the site where you got the information, just to make sure it's creditable.

Nothing up online as of yet, Sky News reporting that Reuters have got this from an Iranian source. Probably something up over the next few minutes but this broke as I wrote it.

Just checked out reuters.com - nothing about it there...this should be a pretty big story if accurate.

The report is not in the written form just yet - but I am watching it on Sky news right now.

Turbulence was mentioned but that it was ''forced'' to land. Does this mean shot down as it was over Iranian airspace?

Fox news is reporting it from Iranian News Agency via Reuters alert.

Now tickertape item on BBC News website, no individual page yet, breaking news. Fox and BBC reporting it as "warplane" not "spy plane"

They are now calling it a transport plane with American personal on, didnt specify exactly what kind.

From spy plane to war plane to transport plane lol.

They were interviewed and released to carry on their journey.

I heard them say it was a Falcon, with 8 passengers, it was made to land yesterday, boarded, and released to go where ever it was going

You are right, but i heard him use the word transport plane, able to carry no more than 15 passengers


This is the type of plane in question right?

A little blurb here on an Iranian news source:

www.presstv.com...

Claims their air force forced the US plane (fighter? Spy?) down for violating airspace.

So that's their line, and the Pentagon's line is "we know nothinnng" - so either a fantom US plane popped out of nowhere, or the Iranians are completely making all of this up for kicks n' giggles.

Hmm.

Awesome way to distract the people regarding the "crash"

Denied by the Pentagon.

Would be pretty embarrassing if the Iranians released pictures proving it, but I suspect the US would just claim that they have been doctored.

Just goes to show you how screwed up the news reporting accuracy is..just keep that in mind when the news tells you about other things too.

Cheers!!!!

Probably wasn't "missing" they knew it was in Iran..maybe not where they wanted it but not missing technically.
