DUBAI (Reuters) - A Boeing 707 military cargo plane crashed in bad weather on Monday west of the Iranian capital, killing 15 out of the 16 people on board, the Iranian army said.

 

A flight engineer survived and was taken to hospital, the army said in a statement carried by the semi-official Fars news agency. The aircraft’s black box - a cockpit voice recorder (CVR) - had been recovered at the crash site, Fars said.

 

The plane went down near Fath airport, which belongs to Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards Corps and is located near Karaj in the central Iranian province of Alborz.

 

“A Boeing cargo 707 place carrying meat from Bishkek in Kyrgyzstan had an emergency landing at Fath airport today ... the flight engineer has been dispatched to the hospital,” the army said in the statement.

 

“It exited the runway during the landing and caught fire after hitting the wall at the end of the runway,” it said.

 

An army spokesman, Shahin Taghikhani, told state TV that the plane belonged to Iran and that all on board were Iranian citizens. The army’s statement came after conflicting reports over who owned the plane.

 

State TV said rescue teams had been sent to the area, between the airports of Fath and Payam International Airport, where the plane had been meant to land.

Much more details at http://avherald.com/h?article=4c2d9613&opt=0

The plane landed on the wrong airport - not the first time this happened there either.........

‘A Saha Airlines Boeing 707-300 freighter, registration EP-CPP performing a freight flight from Bishkek (Kyrgyzstan) to Karaj (Iran) with 16 crew and a cargo of meat, was on approach to Karaj's Payam Airport's runway 30 (length 3660 meters/12,000 feet) when the crew descended towards and landed on Fath's airport 31L (length 1000 meters/3300 feet), overran the runway, broke through an airport perimeter wall, crashed into houses past the end of the runway and burst into flames at about 08:30L (03:00Z). So far one survivor (the flight engineer) and 16 bodies have been recovered. A number of houses were damaged’.

America and Israel which controls it might as well killed these people directly.  Iran is forced to fly garbage airplanes because of silly sanctions.

Presume the will blame the yanks for not supplying them parts, but does Boeing actually make parts for a plane that is over 40 years old?

No longer, he has donated it to a museum.

 

The US military has 400 (military versions) and intends to fly them to 2040, so there is still plenty of engineering support.
