Eyes Aloft - The Sublime Obsession of Plane Spotting

In April 2014, a New York Times reporter passing through Tehran’s Mehrabad Airport spotted a small plane sporting a tiny but unmistakable American flag on its tail. Because of sanctions limiting commercial interaction between the US and Iran, the stars and stripes were a jarring and mysterious detail, enough to warrant a dispatch in the paper headlined “Iran Gets an Unlikely Visitor, an American Plane, but No One Seems to Know Why.”



This is interesting… Could the reporter have mistaken the flag, or was it actually an american plane…?

Actually, I was to Mehrabad Airport a month ago and I saw one too.
Also saw one in Imam Khomeini Airport.

I live in I.R. Iran and these sightings are great news for me.
