I heard this just now on a cable news channel. I wonder if this is the big October 7th event that sets of a change of things for the United States?

More from the BBC.

American military have said that they have no reports of any military aircrafty being forced down. All aircraft accounted for.

Showed pictures from current Tehran news coming through and not on the news there. And a Falcon military craft cannot hold 8 people though it could be a private Falcon plane.

Hmm. The Pentagon are saying that all war planes are accounted for. Seems the plane was a private one. Iranian sabre rattling, perhaps?

US plane 'forced to land in Iran'
Breaking News

A US plane has been forced to land in Iran after violating Iranian territory, the Iranian semi-official Fars news agency has reported.

It said the Falcon aircraft entered Iranian airspace from Turkey, flying at low altitude to avoid radar.

The agency said the plane was detected by Iranian fighter jets, which forced it to land at an undisclosed airport.

Passengers included five senior American generals and three civilians, the report said.

The agency said the group was interrogated at the airport and then allowed to leave after it was realised they had entered unintentionally.

More details to follow.

A MILITARY AIRPANE WITH 5 TOP GENERALS "unintentionally entering Iranian airspace".

CALL ME SUSPICIOUS BUT THAT SEEMS LIKE A BIT MORE THAN AN ACCIDENT.

Official absolute denial from the Penatagon. Report was from Fars news agency.

Iranian TV - nothing so far in terms of pictures but saying yes we have intercepted.

Namaste

It's almost comical...

Am I the only one who's preferring to believe Iran?

I guess all will become clear.
