Boeing of Ukraine International Airlines crashed in Iran


January 8, 2020 airliner Boeing 737 "Ukraine International Airlines" (UIA) crashed shortly after departure from the airport. Imam Khomeini in Tehran. According to information, from 167 to 180 people were on board. There are no survivors.


According to reports, the UR-PSR flew on a PS752 flight from Tehran to Kiev at 5:15 a.m. local time (4:45 a.m.). As aviation monitoring services specify, the latest information about the location of the board was obtained in the area of ​​the city of Parand, near Tehran (2-3 minutes after departure).

At the same time, Iranian media report that the cause of the terrible disaster, most likely, is the technical problems that the airliner could encounter in flight. In turn, the pro-American media hastened to suggest that the Iranians could accidentally shoot down the board, since around this time Iran inflicted ballistic missile strike at US facilities in Iraq.

According to the head of the emergency department of Iran, Kassim Nizami, most of the passengers on this airliner were Iranians. He clarified that a fire occurred inside the engine compartment of the airliner, so other versions of the disaster, except technicalare not considered. He denied rumors that the board could be shot down by a rocket.




The desire of some media outlets to link this tragedy with the situation in the Greater Middle East is understandable. Indeed, according to their logic, each conflict should have its own Boeing with the dead passengers and crew.

It should be noted that the Ukrainian company UIA has a really outdated fleet. So the likelihood of a serious technical malfunction is very high. Photos from the crash site have already appeared on the web. We express our condolences to the families and friends of the victims.

    The nature of the wreckage (smaller than even the Malaysian Boeing) and low altitude, evokes the idea of ​​a missile. Iranian anti-aircraft gunners moved (after all, the sky over Iran is closed).

      Most likely, the remote control shutdown system worked. I suspected its existence due to extremely similar problems with the management of the Malaysian and Ethiopian Boeing. Where it was tested in "safe" countries.
      On old planes it is not, but on new ones - most likely they are. They pressed a button in Washington - and all Boeing passenger planes crashed in an objectionable country.
      Ukrainians turned up by the arm. Attack, button - but in Iran only Ukrainians on a more or less new plane were ...

        - The problem of the modern world is that smart people are full of doubts, and .... you are overwhelmed with confidence.

          You see, according to American law, Indians outside reservations are allowed to shoot without consequences. And, taking advantage of its global influence, the United States can destroy civilians in any country. Even when they shot down the MN-17 (they shot at Putin, hit the Malaysians), the Dutch Indians were forced to hide the real killers, removing and destroying all the damaging elements from the wreckage of the aircraft, presenting only two slurred pieces of iron from hundreds. And the evidence was pumped from online speculation.

          Now I read it - Boeing 737-800, released in 2016, bought by Ukraine new. Coeval 737 MAX. So the version of remote destruction is real.

      - After 2-3 minutes of flight (it is strange that the exact time of flight is not indicated) ... - The launch of any air defense missile would be so visually obvious to "spectators" or "other eyewitnesses" that it would even be possible to pinpoint the place itself air defense installations ...
      - The most elementary primitive explosive device (most likely, handicraft), hastily installed by some half-educated "self-taught construction battalionists"; and stupidly put into action (the plane also did not have time to fly anywhere) due to fear that the signal of a weak operator of a "disposable cell" might not work ...
      - Most likely, these "dropouts-construction battalions" also confused the plane (why hell do they need this Ukrainian plane with the Iranians) ... or in general - they put charges in the first plane that came across (it was much easier to carry this homemade charge) aircraft .. - After all, even none of these scoundrels takes it upon themselves to blow up the plane ... - no one "confesses" ...

    Of course, everything happens in life, but judging by the video on all the channels, by the way it blazes in flight and like an instant loss of communication, it somehow doesn’t look very much like those. malfunction. And I believe that it is necessary to believe the reports of any Iranian services very, very, very again, to put it mildly, selectively.

    - according to UIA representatives, it was a new aircraft of the release of 2016. No need to juggle the facts. Fine ...

    This is a real stuffing of lies! Board 3 years, bought from a Boeing, as well as 70% of the company's fleet.

    When passenger planes crash, it’s always very sad.

    But the round holes on the debris, aren't they from balls? .. The plane fell already burning.

    - Yes, a no brainer that a rather powerful explosive device, installed in the plane itself, worked ... - the plane burned down and was destroyed ... , as they say (and why such a temporary careless inaccuracy ... -difference in time for a whole minute) ...
    - And you can't shoot down such an airplane with an "arrow" or a "stinger" ... -Of course, it's a bomb installed in the airplane itself ...

    Something these holes on the wreckage very clearly remind me. Somewhere I saw it already?

    If this is not a technical malfunction, then this is a pair of stingers. And these are not Iranians. If they had planted explosives, then they would have been blown up over the Black Sea. To dump on the Russian Federation and not to get to the remnants of the aircraft. But in any case - at a great height.
    A stinger may even be enough. The plane is small, there are two engines, and even if the wing gets, it disrupts the wing mechanization and fuels the fuel tank, then the pilots simply will not have time to cope.
