    Brings a question to mind,

    I remember reading in the Irish Indo a few weeks back that the USS Saratoga (?) was docked in Dublin Port. As the Saratoga is the command vessel for the US 7th fleet, it had a restricted area around it. I believe it was something in the region on 1000ft vertically and 1 miles laterally. A cessna infringed on the TRA and the Saratoga locked on a missile ready to shoot but the cessna turned away.

    Do you think the ship would ahve been within it's right's to shoot the plane down? I am not familiar with TRA's so I don't know.
