Ilyushin 76MD jet crashes after engine fire - video

The IRIAF Il-76MD "Simorgh" jet was destroyed in an accident near Tehran. The "Simogorh" is an Il-76 jet modified with a radar dome on top of the fuselage for airborne early warning and control (AEW&C).

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.

The accident was captured by the crew of a military Lockheed C-130 Hercules, who at the time was recording the flight of a McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II.

A fly-past by the Iranian Air Force was part of the parade. An AWACS-equipped Ilyushin-76MD was to be escorted by several Northrop F-5E Tiger II aircraft. The Il-76MD and one of the escorts collided in mid-air, with the Ilyushin subsequently crashing in flames at Varamin
