This is a funny conversation between a Naval Battle group enroute to Iraq. Listen until the end as tensions build.

This is faked and based on an old naval joke. The story has included every possible Navy or country in the lighthouse and the angry battleship is always the US.

Lol this is funny as heck.

But it is a joke. This joke has been attributed to just about every country. US naval fleets use english in international waters and a carrier has enough support vessels with radar and gps to realize where known land is.

Still funny though

An old but funny one. I've heard it be everything from a carrier, to a battleship. I laugh every time though.

It sounds like two idiots talking. One thinks a lighthouse is a boat, and the other cant explain from the beginning that they are not a boat or ship.

It looks like the navigation system must have been down.

It never hurts to smile even at B.S.

I do have a real story about some Army pilots getting a GCA into an atoll and the final approach controller freaking out.

The Wx on the airport was showing 1/2 mile 400ft overcast with drizzle so the Army U-21 pilots decided to execute a GCA.

The aircraft commander had flown into this field many times.

The field elevation was 1800? feet above sea level and the airport was known to fog in yet be clear below the cloud deck above the ocean and cliff where the airport sat..

Well they got on final and the controller was saying on "course on glide path, on course on glide path". The guys flying kept seeing breaks in the cloud deck and knowing how things worked on the Italian coast pushed over to complete the approach visually. The Italian controller started saying "on course going below glide path, going well below glide path, I'm a telling you nowa if you donna pull up you gonna busta youra A**". The controller was so excited the pilots could not let him know what they were doing for there was never a break in his transmissions. They had the landing lights and runway in sight from over 2 miles out.

I was not there but that is supposedly a true story and funny when told with an Italian controller's accent.

Good jokes never die... they just move on with the times.

Just like the US Navy vs Lighthouse.

Still funny though...

It seems that tale has a long history going right back to 1931, but was originally British by the sound of it.

We had a 747 testbed flying out of Honolulu with a new 777 engine mounted on it. This thing was huge (18 inch ground clearance on the inboard station). After one of their test hops, they landed, and on rollout, HNL calls them and says "Uhm....Are you guys aware that your test engine is on fire?" They responded "Uhm...no. Can you roll equipment please? We're going to stop here and evacuate." They got an extra two months in Hawaii while they rebuilt the engine.

I REMEMBER SEEING THAT AIRCRAFT! I was flying out of Guam (civilian) doing the pacific to include Hawaii. There are so many funny stories about crews, aircraft, and controllers....Funny how each service has their own brand of jokes though.

Navy Commander friend of mine was fond of saying there are no bad Naval Aviators for those who did not cut it were a the bottom of the ocean....We had to terminate a Navy Pilot during IOE for he could not land an MD-80 in a cross wind even after double the IOE time...so I certainly pointed that out to my friend....Well I did enjoy his reaction...guess you had to be there to appreciate it. We played Golf and Tennis together so there was always a bit of competition there.

My all time favorite story EVER.

Base Ops was waiting to escort a B-52 to 8R (they had to tell them where and when to turn, because if they went down the centerline of the taxiway, the wheels on the wingtips would take out every taxi light on either side). He was listening to Clearance so he'd know when the BUFF was ready to go, when he heard an exchange something like this:

Clearance: Japan 017, cleared Honolulu to Narita (included the check points)
JAL: Roger, Japan 017, cleared Hickam to Narita.
Clearance: Negative 017. Cleared HONOLULU to Narita.
JAL: Roger, Hickam to Narita.
Clearance: JAL, you're not departing from Hickam, you're departing from Honolulu. Why do you keep saying Hickam on readback?
JAL: No can say Honoruru very good. Can say Hickam very good!
Clearance: Roger 017, cleared Hickam to Narita.

He laughed about that one for hours.

Like a story one of our F-4G pilots told us one night after a long BUFF escort mission... the F-4s were goofing around doing rolls around the BUFF, saying "hey, can you guys do this?" over the coms... the BUFF crew said "no, but can you do this?"... the coms got quiet for a long time, then the BUFF pilot came back and said "well, can you do that?"... they F-4 pilot asked, "what did you just do?"...the BUFF pilot came on and said "went in the back and took a crap"...

Heaven knows a little levity wouldn't kill the World War Three forum and the context is part of the gag, but I'm moving this to Jokes lest the location of the headline lead to war between the U.S. and Spain.

As always, if anyone disagrees, please don't hesitate to send me a private message.

...and maybe adjust course 15 degrees south, just in case.
