How on earth do those Iranians keep these old birds flying in spite of all those sanctions?And who in their right mind in the year 2000 would have believed an Iranian commercial passenger flight from Kerman to Baghdad possible? Crazier than Hollywood's "Mission Impossible."
Boeing makes tough cookies, if anyone studies more about airframes and aircraft engines and more study about A, B, C, D, checks then it is believable that theseplanes can fly even longer lifespan than factory's recommendations.Douglas DC-3 " Dakotas" and military types C-47s s wings were designed to flyover 100,000 hours in 1937, therefore it is not strange to see these planes stillflying.Iran air despite all the sanctions can find parts in the world since there are lots of suppliers available and besides Iran has very highly trained maintenance crewwho have all been trained by Boeing, in U.S. another point is that if you are in sanctions what is the other choice while you can not buy NEW planes ?????
