    Top This One For A Speeding Ticket……..



    Two California Highway Patrol Officers were conducting speeding enforcement on I-15, just north of the Marine Corps Air Station at Miramar . One of the officers was using a hand held radar device to check speeding vehicles approaching the crest of a hill. The officers were suddenly surprised when the radar gun began reading 300 miles per hour. The officer attempted to reset the radar gun, but it would not reset and then turned off.

    Just then a deafening roar over the treetops revealed that the radar had in fact locked on to a USMC F/A-18 Hornet which was engaged in a low flying exercise near the location.



    Back at the CHP Headquarters the Patrol Captain fired off a complaint to the USMC Base Commander. The reply came back in true USMC style:

    ~ ~ ~

    Thank you for your letter. We can now complete the file on this incident.

    You may be interested to know that the tactical computer in the Hornet had detected the presence of, and subsequently locked on to your hostile radar equipment and automatically sent a jamming signal back to it, which is why it shut down.

    Furthermore, an Air-to-Ground missile aboard the fully armed aircraft had also automatically locked on to your equipment location.

    Fortunately, the Marine Pilot flying the Hornet recognized the situation for what it was, quickly responded to the missile system alert status and was able to override the automated defense system before the missile was launched to destroy the hostile radar position.

    The pilot also suggests you cover your mouths when cussing at them, since the video systems on these jets are very high tech.

    Sergeant Johnson, the officer holding the radar gun, should get his dentist to check his left rear molar. It appears the filling is loose. Also, the snap is broken on his holster.

    Thank you for your concern.

    Myth Busters did an interesting episode on this exact situation. Even though it was busted, it was still and interesting hypothesis.

    Back in 1989 as a butter bar at my tech school in Goodfellow AFB, TX, I heard the same story from a classmate (navigator school flunkie) who was told by one of his former nav instructors that a B-52 crew doing low level training detected an unresolved reading on the radar warning receiver.

    The now not-so-bored electronic warfare officer jammed the "offending" radar burning through the overmatched radar with radar interference signals causing its electronics to fail.

    The PD/state police, whatever, fired off a complaint to the local USAF base which led to the wing commander to fire off a letter saying his officer did his job as far as he was concerned........

    .....I think both stories are just that, stories, but funny to read nonetheless.

    I've never been caught for doing 100+mph, and I do it 7 days every two weeks.

    When I was a dumb kid with far more guts than brains, I got stopped well into triple digit territory on a CBR while at Ft. Lewis. I lost my license and damn near got kicked out of my way cool Gucci assignment I had at the time.

    Years later, it still haunted me. It cost me at least one job when I was trying to get started in LE, and had to explain to the Chief that hired me that I was a dumb kid and learned my lesson.

    True Miramar story

    My last 2+ years in the Navy I was stationed at Miramar and worked in the tower. As the joke states the I-15 is located just off the end of the runways (6L & 6R).

    So I'm working in the tower and a former Commanding Officer of Top Gun who is now a two star is about to retire. He takes the show bird, a gloss black, smoking hot looking F-14 (TopGun001) for his final flight. He had an unrestricted climb to about 20,000 approved with the FAA.

    He calls us for clearance and we let him go. He lifts off fast and sucks the gear and stays about 10 feet off the ground and in after burner for the whole length of the runway (12,400 feet long). He hits the end of the runway at about warp factor 2 and rips back on the stick and goes vertical right over the early rush hour traffic on the freeway. He stays in burner and screams upward until he's out of sight. It was truely awesome! Some of the folks took pictures and others were high fiving, it was waaaay cool.

    The funny part of this story is that apparantly all of the drivers on I-15 were watching him too because about 15 minutes later we saw all the CHP flashing lights from the tower. Through the binos it looked like a huge mess. 22 accidents.

    Go Navy! Summer of 1996 is the time frame.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.
