I am having second thoughts about travelling to Iran to take a flight on a Saha Air B707, and was considering the possibility of travelling to Argentina if there is half a chance to fly on the LADE example.
Last I heard it was in for a D-check (which was good news) - does anyone know when it is / was scheduled back into service, and whether it is operating any specific services for them?

I flew done to EZE last year in hopes to fly this and did not get a chance to LADE's website is not very up to date and I had little luck with a response to emails to them. So when I arrived in EZE went to LADE HDQ in the city and was told its a hit or miss whe it flies. GOOD LUCK! I am dying to fly it!

Sounds just as hit and miss as last year when this a/c was being talked about.
However, now that airevents.de are organising a second Iran tour for later this year, I have decided to go with that option, as I feel better about an organised tour in Iran, rather than travelling there alone.
Still, any more information on the status of the LADE B707 is welcome...
