Flying on patrol over the Saudi Desert, a [ USAF Boeing E-3 Sentry AWACS ] picks up 2 blips on RADAR piercing out of the Iranian air base of [ Bushehr | بوشهر ]. Identified as [ IRIAF | القوات الجوية لجيش الجمهورية الإسلامية الإيرانية ] [ McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II ]s, their presence is reported and tracked, vectoring towards Saudi airspace. After a number of radio attempts to turn the F-4s back, 2 [ RSAF | القوات الجوية الملكية الـسعودية ] [ McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle ]s were directed to intercept, resulting in one of the most confusing bits of comprehensively recorded history.
