Dead After Military Cargo Plane Crashes In Iran

The cargo plane that crashed in Iran reportedly departed from Kyrgyzstan's Manas airport

Reports say the plane was flying from Bishkek Kirgizstan, but mistakenly landed at Fat'h airport instead of Payam airport and the pilot could not control the plane on the runway.

The incident occurred close to Fath airport west of the capital, Tehran, on Monday, the semi-official news agency said. The army's statement came after some confusion over who owned the plane.

Fire immediately engulfed the aircraft after it skidded off a runway and crashed into a wall separating the airport from a residential neighbourhood.

It showed footage of burning wreckage in a wooded area.

Iranian state television aired images of smoke-charred homes and the fuselage of the aircraft lying on the ground in the neighborhood.

Graham says Trump isn’t giving in on southern border wall
Until Friday, Trump had suggested numerous times that he was getting closer to taking the controversial decision. Opponents say such a unilateral presidential move would be constitutional overreach and set a unsafe precedent.

But a source told Fars agency that the plane belonged to the Iranian military's air force.

"Details of the accident and martrydom or injury of the flight team is still being investigated", the army said.

Iranians often use the word "martyrdom" for those who die in war or national service, suggesting the aircraft may have belong to the air force.

Saha Airlines operated one of the world's last commercial flights of the Boeing 707, which was first manufactured in 1958 and helped usher in the jet age.
