Accidente: IRAN Aria Airlines Flight 1525

Actualización: 27/07/09

Accidente aéreo con 17 víctimas en Irán se atribuye a exceso de velocidad durante aterrizaje

Astaná, 27 de julio, RIA Novosti. El exceso de velocidad durante el aterrizaje se indica como causa fundamental del accidente aéreo que provocó 17 muertos y 30 heridos en la ciudad iraní de Meshed, el pasado 24 de julio, informó hoy un portavoz del Ministerio de Transporte y Comunicaciones de Kazajstán cuyos representantes participan en la investigación del caso.

Una aeronave del modelo Iliushin-62M perteneciente a la compañía kazaja Deta Air y alquilada por la iraní Aria Air se salió de la pista y embistió contra un cerco después de aterrizar en el aeropuerto de Meshed. Expertos atribuyen la catástrofe al hecho de que el avión, procedente de Teherán, "tocó la tierra en el medio de la pista e iba a una velocidad superior a la máxima permitida durante el aterrizaje".

De las 160 personas que se encontraban a bordo murieron 17, entre ellas, cinco pilotos que eran ciudadanos de Kazajstán y tres nacionales de Rusia.

Asciende a 30 los muertos y a 20 los heridos en accidente aéreo en el noroeste de Irán

Moscú, 24 de julio, RIA Novosti. Asciende a 30 los muertos y a 20 los heridos a consecuencia del accidente aéreo que sufrió hoy un avión de pasajeros iraní en el aeropuerto de la ciudad de Meshhed, noreste de Irán, informó hoy el canal iraní Press TV.

El aparato de la compañía de aviación Aria partió de Teherán con 160 personas a bordo, y al aterrizar en Meshhed se salió de la pista de aterrizaje y se incendió.

El pasado 15 de julio, un Tu-154 de la compañía iraní Caspian Airlines cayó en la provincia de Qazvin, en el noroeste de Irán ocasionado la muerte de 153 pasajeros y 15 tripulantes.

Iranian plane makes emergency landing, 17 killed
Mashhad, July 24 (MNA) -- Over 17 people were killed and 19 others injured after an Iranian passenger plane made an emergency landing in Mashhad on Friday.

Aria Airlines Flight 1525 took off from Tehran and its definition was Mashhad. The plane caught fire while the pilot was attempting to land in Mashhad, reportedly because a tire burst.

However, officials at Mashhad’s Shahid Hasheminejad Airport told IRNA that the cause of the accident is not clear yet.

The Khorasan Razavi Province Governor General’s Office said that 153 passengers were on board the Ilyushin aircraft but gave no further details.

The crash came less than 10 days after Caspian Airlines Flight 7908 -- a 23-year-old Russian-made Tupolev Tu154M plane -- crashed in northwestern Iran, killing all 153 passengers and 15 crew members aboard.

Several killed in Iran plane blaze

The plane was carrying 153 passengers when it burst into flames and skidded of a runway in Iran


At least 17 people have been killed after a plane burst into flames as it was landing in northeastern Iran.

The Aria Airlines plane caught fire as it was landing and skidded off the runway at an airport in the city of Mashhad on Friday.

Footage from Iran's Press TV showed the plane tilted at an awkward angle with the mangled front end pointing upwards.

At least 19 other people were injured in the incident involving the Russian-designed Ilyushin 62 aircraft, which was carrying 153 passengers from the capital, Tehran.

The aircraft's wheels caught fire on landing before it veered off the runway and crashed into a wall, a source told Iran's official IRNA news agency.

Ghahreman Rashid, the deputy governor of Khorasan province, said: "All the dead and injured people and passengers have been evacuated and the fire has been completely controlled."

Aviation disasters

The aircraft was reportedly run by independent Iranian firm Aria Air which offers flights from the Gulf port of Bandar Abbas to Tehran as well as from Mashhad, a popular Shia Muslim pilgrimage centre.

The incident comes after a Caspian Airlines plane crashed on July 15 near the city of Qazvin, northwest of Tehran, killing all 168 on board.

Iran has suffered a number of aviation disasters over the past decade as it struggles under years of international sanctions which have hampered its ability to buy modern Boeing or Airbus planes.

Its civil and military fleet is made up of old aircraft in very poor condition and lacking maintenance.

US sanctions prevent Iran from updating its 30-year-old American aircraft and also make it difficult to get European spare parts or planes.

The country relies on Russian aircraft, many of them Soviet-era planes that are harder to get parts for since the fall of the Soviet Union.

In another Iranian air disaster, 117 people were killed when their Russian-designed Tupolev plane crashed into snow-covered mountains in the west of the country in 2002.

Iran's worst crash came in February 2003 when a plane, also a Russian-made Ilyushin, ploughed into mountains in southeastern Iran killing 302 aboard - mostly members of the elite Revolutionary Guard.
