Iranian plane makes emergency landing

Tehran - An Iranian plane had to make an emergency landing in Tehran
on Sunday shortly after takeoff, the official news agency IRNA

The Tupelev airplane, owned by Iranian airline Mahan, was on its way
from Tehran to the Persian Gulf port of Mahshahr when it was forced to
return to the capital's Mehrabad airport.

A spokesperson from the civil aviation organisation told IRNA that the
plane and its passengers were safe.

He declined to give any further details on the incident pending
technical inspections.

The incident in Tehran was the third of its kind within the last three weeks.

The first was a fatal crash of a Caspian Airlines plane on July 15 in
Qazvin, which killed all 168 people on board.

The second was last Friday when a Kazakh plane rented by Iran's Aria
airways caught fire while landing in Mashad in north-eastern Iran.

Sixteen people, including 12 Kazakh crew members and the Russian
pilot, were killed in the incident.

There were also reports of another emergency landing on Saturday in
Oroumieh, in north-western Iran, but the reports could not be
confirmed. - Sapa-dpa
