My radar is better than your radar!

Two California Highway Patrol Officers were conducting
speeding enforcement on I-15, North of MCAS Miramar. One of
the officers was using a hand held radar device to check
speeding vehicles approaching near 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 turned off.

Just then a deafening roar over the treetops revealed that
the radar had in fact locked onto 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.

Back came a reply in true USMC style:
Thank you for the message, which allows us to 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 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 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 and
your hostile radar was destroyed.

Thank you for your concerns.

All the best to you,

Not true. Still a good story though.

Funny my office is only one off ramp north of Miramar off the I-15, could of been one of the A-hole CHP's that got me about 6 months ago. He stopped me then started going over my truck sometimes it's better to have a beater. Too bad they don't have to many birds flying at Miramar anymore.
