    Plane with 106 people crashes in Iran; 35 survive







    45 mins ago
    TEHRAN, Iran – An IranAir passenger jet carrying 106 people crashed as it was making an emergency landing Sunday in a snowstorm in the country's northwest and broke into several pieces, killing 71 of those on board, Iranian media reported. The others survived with light injuries.

    The pilots of the Boeing-727, operated by Iran's national airline, attempted the emergency landing in the city of Orumiyeh after reporting a technical failure to the control tower, the semiofficial Mehr news agency reported, quoting a deputy provincial governor, Ebrahim Fatholahi.

    The nature of the technical failure was unclear. A spokesman for the Iranian civil aviation organization, Abbas Mosayebi, said only that the plane "faced an incident," state TV reported.

    The network also said the aircraft disappeared from radar and went down in farmland after making a second attempt to land. There was no word on what might have caused the crash. The aircraft was headed from Tehran to Orumiyeh, capital of West Azerbaijan province, a distance of about 460 miles, or 700 kilometers.

    State TV aired footage showing rescue workers and local farmers searching for survivors Sunday night in parts of the wrecked plane under snowfall and in the darkness.

    Thirty-five people survived, including two crew members, said Javad Mahmoudi, another deputy governor for West Azerbaijan, speaking to State TV. He put the number of confirmed dead at 71.

    Some of the passengers were only lightly wounded and able to walk off the plane and some had to be hospitalized, Mosayebi said.

    Heavy snow complicated rescue efforts, said the head of the State Emergency Canter, Gholam Reza Masoumi, according to the semiofficial Fars news agency. That report also said there was fog in the area.

    The plane broke into several pieces, but there was no explosion or fire, said Mahmoud Mozaffar, head of the rescue department of Iran's Red Crescent Society, speaking on state TV.

    Iran has a history of frequent air accidents blamed on its aging aircraft and poor maintenance. IranAir's fleet includes Boeing and Airbus aircraft, many of them bought before the country's 1979 Islamic Revolution, which led to a cutoff in ties between the two nations.

    Iranian airlines, including those run by the state, are chronically strapped for cash, and maintenance has suffered, experts say. U.S. sanctions prevent Iran from updating its 30-year-old American aircraft and make it difficult to get European spare parts or planes as well. The country has come to rely on Russian aircraft, many of them Soviet-era planes that are harder to get parts for since the Soviet Union's fall.

    In July 2009 a Russian-made jetliner crashed in northwest Iran shortly after taking off from the capital, killing all 168 on board.

    At least 70 killed in Iranian passenger plane crash

    At least 70 people were killed and 35 injured when an Iranian Boeing 727 passenger plane crashed in bad weather in northwestern Iran on Sunday, the head of the Iranian Red Crescent said.

    Mahmoud Mozafar told Reuters that many of the injured were in a bad condition. He said 106 people, 12 crew members and 94 passengers, were on board the Iran Air plane when it crashed.

    Another Red Crescent official, Heidar Heidari, told the state news agency IRNA, that the "death toll is expected to increase."

    Relatives of people aboard gathered at Tehran's Mehrabad airport to get information from authorities, a Reuters cameraman said.

    Earlier, Iranian media gave different accounts of the number of people on board the plane, which some officials said crashed just before landing at the airport in the city of Urumiyeh, located about 1,000 km (625 miles) northwest of the capital in a mountainous area near the border with Turkey.

    Wow, it's lucky that some lived. Plane crashes don't often end with survivors. It's very rare.
