Aria Air IL-62 Crash-Landed in Iran

Today an Aria Air Ilyushin 62M (UP-I6208) crash-landed at Mashhad-Shahid Hashemi Nejad Airport (MHD), Iran. Aria Air Flight 1525 was bound from Tehran-Mehrabad Airport (THR) to Mashhad. At least 16 people on board have been killed.

Apparently the IL-62 skidded off the runway, ripping off the nose section completely and came to rest next to a field.
The weather at time of the accident was quite good, wind from 060 with 14 knots, clear sky, unlimited ceiling. Probably the plane made a cross-wind landing.

    Another iranian airliner that crash. It’s the second russian-made airplane that crashes in just one month.

    Aircraft touched down more than a third down the runway at 180kts, arguing in the cockpit with the MD and his son. So many basic stuff ups, expect this in the 60s, not now.
