I'll post this here as you fellas would be closer to the source and well may know the history behind my query. I have received the following: qoute Two Hunter traffic patrol officers from Newcastle Local Area Command (LAC) were involved in an unusual incident while checking for speeding motorists on the F2 Freeway. One of the officers was using a hand-held radar device to check the speed of a vehicle approaching over the crest of a hill, and was surprised when a speed was recorded at over 300 mph. Their radar suddenly stopped working and the officers were not able to reset it. Just then a deafening roar over the treetops revealed that the radar had in fact latched on to a RAAF Williamtown F/A 18 fighter jet which was engaged in a low-flying exercise over Wyong, approaching from the Ocean. Back at police headquarters the Local Area Commander fired off a stiff complaint to the RAAF Liaison officer at Williamtown. Back came the reply in true laconic RAAF style: "Thank you for your message, which allows us to complete the file on this incident. You may be interested to know that the tactical computer in the F/A 18 had detected the presence of, and subsequently locked onto, your hostile radar equipment and automatically sent a jamming signal back to it. Furthermore, an air- to-ground missile aboard the fully-armed aircraft had also automatically locked onto your equipment. Fortunately the pilot flying the F/A 18 recognized the situation for what it was, quickly responded to the missile systems alert status, and was able to override the automated defense system before the missile was launched and your hostile radar installation was destroyed. Thank you for your enquiry. endqoute Now, I have seen this story set in the UK and the US of A and now here in Oz. Does anyone know of the real yarn, if at all it happened. Cos I think next time I receive it it'll be set in Crapistan.
