May 25, 2016




The MiG-29UB two-seat combat trainer of Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force (IRIAF) crashed upon take off on the runway of the air base, due to a technical failure. A MiG-29UB fighter aircraft of Iran’s Air Force had to make an emergency landing at a military airport in the western city of Hamedan, during which one of the pilots was killed and the other suffered vertebral injury.

On Tuesday morning, technical problems during a training operation forced the warplane to make an emergency landing at the Nojeh airbase in Hamedan.

One of the pilots, Major Ruzbeh Nazerian, suffered a concussion in the crash and was pronounced dead later after being admitted to a hospital.

The other serviceman, Ali Qolipour has also fractured his vertebra during the incident.

The MiG-29 is a twin-engine jet fighter aircraft, developed in the Soviet Union during the 1970s. Iran’s Air Force is believed to have 25 MiG-29s.

According to IRIAF, the Mig-29UB will be repaired and returned to service.
