Are we not supposed to intercept on the left side of the intercepted aircraft?
Is not the Lear supposed to acknowledge the intercept signals?
Next, someone is going to say "well we were talking on 121.5"
Guys, I`m all for fair weather flying but play the game - sheeeesh!!

122.75 is the preferred air to air frequency, but lots of folks use 123.45. I looked at some of the posted comments, some suggesting that it was just a friend in the F16 "saying hi", but didn't look like that to me. That Lear may have been flying VFR at 17,500', not talking to anybody and punching into a hot MOA.
Wild speculation on my part, but I've seen it happen up close and personal...
