Aircraft in the Persian Gulf AOR are required to give the Iranian Air Defense Radar (military) a ten minute 'heads up' if they will be transiting Iranian airspace.
A pilot overheard this conversation on the VHF Guard (emergency) frequency 121.5 MHz while flying from Europe to Dubai .

The conversation...

Iranian Air Defense Radar: 'Unknown aircraft you are in Iranian airspace. Identify yourself.'

U.S. Aircraft: 'This is a United States aircraft. I am in Iraqi airspace.'

Iranian Air Defense Radar: 'No you are in Iranian airspace. If you do not depart our airspace we will launch an interceptor aircraft!'

U.S. Aircraft: 'This is a United States Marine Corps FA-18 fighter: "Send 'em up. I'll wait!'

Iranian Air Defense Radar: (no response ... )
