  4. 14:20 07Oct08 RTRS-Iran report says U.S. plane violated its territory
    TEHRAN, Oct 7 (Reuters) - An Iranian news agency said on Tuesday that a U.S. military aircraft had violated Iranian territory unintentionally and had been forced to land in Iran.
    The semi-official Fars News Agency did not say when the incident happened.
    It said five senior U.S. military officials had been interrogated at an Iranian airport and released a day later after it became clear the U.S. plane had not entered intentionally.

    Seems after a quick body search revealed no ipods they were all released - this sounds very strange...... :?

    And the Yanks are saying it didn't happen. I'd wait for the pictures to be published (and I would have thought the Iranians would have made sure there were plenty) before accepting this story as true.
  7. What were the septics dropping off in Iran???
  8. Exactly, if true how on earth do you 'accidentally' fly into Iranian airspace?? :roll:
  9. It must have been a big "Fighter plane" if it was carrying "five senior US military officials".
  10. Same as map reading errors in S Armagh :oops:
  11. wonder if they got a suit each
  12. Didnt they say it was a 'Falcon' ?
