F-22 Phantom Jet To Iranians Pilots in Pursuit of US Drone "you really ought to go Home" [They Did]

















The U.S. Air Force has a message for Iran: Don’t mess with our drones.
 The Aviationist reports that in March a U.S. MQ-1 drone came close to being intercepted by an Iranian F-4 Phantom combat plane, but the Iranian aircraft stopped short after a warning by an American pilot.

In what only can be described as a scene out of Tom Cruise’s “Top Gun,” Gen. Mark A. Welsh IIIAir Force chief of staff, describes how F-22 stealth jets scared off Iranian jets from 
a U.S. drone flying in international airspace.

“He [the Raptor pilot] flew under their aircraft [the F-4s] to check out their weapons load without them knowing that he was there, and then pulled up on their left wing and then called them and said ‘you really ought to go’” Gen. Welsh said.

According to The Aviationist, the Iranians came within 16 miles of the drone.
