Re: Ukraine International Airlines B737-800WL crash.

Sad day for the aviation. RIP to all victims


Ukraine International Airlines Boeing 737-800, registration UR-PSR performing flight PS-752 from Tehran Imam Khomeini (Iran) to Kiev (Ukraine) with 167 passengers and 9 crew, was climbing through 8000 feet out of Tehran's runway 29R about 12nm northwest of the airport at about 06:18L (02:48Z), when the aircraft's transponder signals ceased. The aircraft was found in an open field near Parand, a surbub of Tehran, near the last transponder position (N35.52 E50.91). All occupants perished in the crash.


Crash: UIA B738 at Tehran on Jan 8th 2020, lost height after departure, engine failure

Re: Ukraine International Airlines B737-800WL crash.

Terrible!
I really can't stop myself thinking if this can have something to do with the crises between USA (it's a Boeing aircraft) and Iran, or if this is an accident.
They must be holding their breath at Boeing...

RIP to all those who lost their life. And thoughts to their families.

This tragedy doesn't seem linked with Iran attack to USA bases in Iraq, maybe an engine fail.
The airplane was performing Teheran - Kiev route, on board the majority of passengers were Iranian.
Before to hit the ground the airplane parformed a dramatic turn but it seems it was already burning.

Re: Ukraine International Airlines B737-800WL crash.

There is imagery showing projectile holes in the fuselage and a wing section.
Question is if they come from exploding jet engine or a missile?


(edit: correct me if I'm wrong but a projectile hole in vertical stabilizer coming from the engine debris seems rather unlikely...)

Just 3 years old this B737-800WL and Kiev starts to speak of "terrorism" or maybe somerhing linked to a surface to air missile.
I am sure at Boeing everyone thinks to a "missile" cause because, after B737 MAX tragedies, a 3 years old B737NG engines fault would mean yet another disaster.
R.I.P. to all the victims.

I am sure this is going to be another mystery, Iran will not give the black boxes to Boeing and USA and Ukraine and Iran will check what happened to the airplane.

Re: Ukraine International Airlines B737-800WL crash.

Worst of all, this tragedy became part of the world's political game and everyone will want to win something using a human misery.
I don't expect a truly independent, reliable and objective investigation of its causes...

You're right my friend.
The last announce is "a missile can't be excluded" and it says all.

Iran has now admitted that it shot the plane down. https://twitter.com/hassanrouhani/st...423823872?s=21

Re: Ukraine International Airlines B737-800WL crash.

"Own goal" for Iran, this late confirm of what everyone imagined and then, knew, makes Iran far from being a worthy of trust country.
Sad story, especially for the killed and their families. I imagine that it is intolerable to "accept" to die for an airplane accident, but even more intolerable to "accept" to die because of someone launching a missile against a civil airplane.
And, if i am not wrong, this is the 8th airplane shot down by a missile in about 45 years:

1973 Libyan Arab Airlines B727 shot down in Egypt by Israeli fighters, 108 dead
1980 Itavia DC-9 shot down in the Mediterranean Sea (over Ustica) by a missile launched during a battle among Libyans and NATO fighters, 81 dead
1983 Korean Air B747-200 shot down over Sakhalin Isle by Soviet fighters, 269 dead
1988 Iran Air A300 shot down by a missile launched by US Navy Vincennes, 290 dead
2001 Sibir Airlines Tu-154 shot down by Ukrainian missile, 78 dead
2007 TransAviaexport Airlines Il-76 shot down by a missile, 11 dead
2014 Malaysia Airlines B777-200 shot down by a missile over Crimea, 298 dead.
