New livery for Iran Aseman Boeing 727 airliner

Above: Iran Aseman Airlines Boeing 727-228/Adv, reg. EP-ASD (cn 22085/1665)

This aircraft photographed by S.M.J.Tabib on 03MAR15 at Tehran - Mehrabad International (THR / OIII), displaying updated Iran Aseman Airlines livery.

Aircraft originally constructed in 1980 and operated by Air France, reg. F-GCDE.

Iran Aseman Airlines currently operates four Boeing 727-200 series passenger jets.

Another aviation observer has pointed out this aircraft's Pratt & Whitney JT8D engines are not fitted with hush kits; likely unavailable to Iranian carriers due to sanctions.

You are saying this plane is 35 years old or minimum 30 years old? Is it not supposed to be decommissioned? Is it safe? Why do they buy these planes and who buys them? Are you sure the production year is right?
