Has anyone considered the fact that IRAN has a number of German
manufactured diesal-electric submarines capable of long range patrols,
and a number of American-made hawk antiaircraft missles?  It wouldn't
be difficult for a submerged sub to monitor air traffic control
transmissions from an exposed whip antenna, hear the clearance for
takeoff and the runway number, surface, fire a hawk, and instantly
submerge...  Or if the submarine theory is too far out, how about a
tramp steamer with a hawk?

A stinger probably couldn't have done it, but a hawk would make small
work of a 747.
