An Antonov freighter believed to be operated by a Bulgarian carrier crashed outside Tehran yesterday, while flying from Payam to Sharjah. Apparently the crew survived.

Does anyone have more info on type (An12?) and airline, possibly reg?

Sad news about the plane, but great if the crew did survive. Even with my limited visits to DXB and SHJ, I've also managed to take shots of several planes that have shortly afterwards been written off.

Some before and after examples:
