Haunting video posted to YouTube on Friday shows previously unseen footage of Iranian military aircraft's tragic crash almost two years ago.
On September 22, 2009, the Iranian IRIAF Il-76MD "Simorgh" jet plummeted to the ground in an accident near Tehran, claiming the lives of all seven people on board.
According to the YouTube description:
It has been reported that the crew reported an engine fire. While maneuvering for an emergency landing at Tehran-Mehrabad Airport (THR) runway 29L the radar dome detached, striking the tail fin. Control was lost and the airplane crashed.
