    Here are the transcripts of the video, they clearly checked twice with the FOC to see if there were any friendlies which they were told NO.

    "1336.57 POPOV36:

    Hey, I got a four ship. Looks like we got orange panels on them though. Do we have any friendlies up in this area?

    1337.03 MANILA HOTEL:

    I understand that was north 800 metres.

    1337.12 MANILA HOTEL:

    POPOV, understand that was north 800 metres?

    1337.16 POPOV35:

    Confirm, north 800 metres. Confirm there are no friendlies this far north on the ground.

    1337.21 MANILA HOTEL:

    That is an affirm. You are well clear of friendlies."


    2nd confirm
    "POPOV for MANILA 3, is MANILA 34 in this area?

    1339.14 MANILA HOTEL:

    Say again?

    1339.15 POPOV35:

    MANILA HOTEL, is MANILA 34 in this area?

    1339.19 MANILA HOTEL:

    Negative. Understand they are well clear of that now."

        I'm not trying to say it wasn't crappy, you can tell by his reaction afterwards that he was devastated...

          Yes, they were told that there were no friendlies in the area. But that doesn't help the pilots feel any better.
