Crash Landing in Mashhad

A day after a passenger train derailed leaving Mashhad, killing seven people, a passenger jet crashed landed in the city, injuring 46 people. The Taban Air plane caught fire upon landing at Mashhad at 7:20 am local time on Sunday. Iran has seen numerous crashes in recent years and its airlines have been plagued by maintenance problems.

The fact the Iranians can't even acquire sufficient spare parts for 'civil' airliners is quite ridiculous!

Remember the C-130 crash back in 2005 that hit the apartment building and killed around 90 people!?
