The Caspian Airlines Mc Donnell Douglas, MD-83 was flying from Tehran and crash down in Mahsahhr City near the airport, a city in Iran’s oil-rich southwestern Khuzestan province on Monday 27, ended up the belly- down in the middle of the highway.
In 2019, sixty-six (66) passengers were killed in a plane crash while dozens were killed when Iran Airplane crash and broke into a piece in the process of landing in 2011.
However, two weeks ago a Ukrainian International Airlines Boeing 737-800 was accidentally shot down by Iran’s armed forces near Tehran, killing all the 176 passengers on the plane before the commencement of the incident in Mahsahhr City on Monday.
Moreover, reports said: “the pilot landed too late and this caused him to miss the runway”.
Still, two passengers out of the 138 passengers on board suffered a leg wounds from the hard landing incident in the City of Mahsahhr and we’re referred to the nearest hospital for treatment.
A reporter who was on board the aircraft said that the back wheel of the plane had broken off and that the plane had skidded on its fuselage.
