Far out this is crazy literally was just saying few hours ago on a article showing air Iran’s last 727 flight that I would not wanna fly any of Iran’s old planes with situation with the embargo’s.

Horrible disaster thoughts with the victims and familes.

Very sad to see indeed. I read an article that said the pilot accidentally landed at the wrong airport.

I’m interested to see what comes to light when this story develops

Can’t believe 707s are still flying, those are getting real old.

More News: It seems to be that a flight engineer on the flight has survived the crash and 15 others are deceased. They are now saying it skidded off the runway meaning it landed but overshot the runway. The news article will be in the original post.

This is bad. If 2018 was already fulfilled with many crashes and deaths, then I don’t even want to know what will occur this year. Prayers to all victims and their families 🙏

Seeing us lose another 707 is quite sad. R.I.P those people who died. I used to love watching 707’s fly over my house, until they stopped. Now we only have 767-300’s and Embraer E170’s. And some others. I just want to see another 707 fly over my house.

Really sad news and not a good way to start off 2019. It was sadly a matter of time until something like this happened in Iran. They need some newer aircraft, but can’t get them because of the sanctions. Terrible to see that politics affects the lives of people this much. Praying for the families of the victims and the one survivor.

Not speculation, but I have seen reports saying it might’ve landed at the wrong airport.

That is not good. Let’s hope that 2019 is not bad in terms of accidents. As of now, it’s not looking good.

Reports show that the plane landed at the wrong airport with a runway much too short for a 707 to land on. It overran the runway leaving a sole survivor. Adding to the very small club of people who are sole survivors of plane crashes.

The aircraft EC-CPP will not be repaired and has been written off. https://aviation-safety.net/database/record.php?id=20190114-0
And due to sanctions on Iran, they will likely not be able to buy a 707 to replace this one.
