176 killed in Ukrainian plane which crashed in Iran shortly after takeoff

 

176 passengers and crew have died inside a Boeing 737 Ukraine plane which reportedly crashed shortly after takeoff from Imam Khomeini Airport in Tehran, Iran’s capital.

The Ukrainian International Airlines plane which took off from the Iranian capital city’s main international airport by 6:12am Tehran time on Wednesday, went down eight minutes after takeoff according to flight tracking websites.

A video purportedly of the crash circulated by the ISNA news agency showed the aircraft burning as it fell from the sky, indicating the crash did not appear to have links to Wednesday morning’s missile strikes on bases in Iraq hosting US and coalition troops.

Head of Iran’s Emergency Medical Services Pirhossein Koulivand, said emergency crew members have been dispatched to the crash site but couldn’t assist because the area is currently ablaze.

The crashed airplane has reportedly been in service for about three and half years according to flight-tracking service FlightRadar 24.

The Boeing 737 airplane is said to belongs to the same family as the 737 Max 8 aircraft, which has been grounded since suffering two fatal crashes within six months in Indonesia and Ethiopia.
