No information about the airlines. I think the only airlines operating this Iranian built An-140 was Safiran but they ceased operation, their aircrafts now operated by Iraninan Police (but maybe I'm wrong).

Here is the article.....

Iran-140 crashed under Isfahan

Regional turboprop Iran-140 plane crashed on Sunday, February 15, during approach to the airport in Isfahan, the Press-TV.

According to the media, the aircraft performed a training flight, in addition to the pilot-instructor on board were four interns, refresher training on this type. All of them were killed. Information on casualties and the destruction of the earth has not yet been reported. A investigation into the causes of the accident.

Iran-140 - manufactured by the Ukrainian license Iranian HESA company version of the AN-140, calculated on the transport of 52 passengers.

This disaster was the third account, which took place with the liners of this type. Earlier, a car was lost in Iran, in the night crew deviated from the established pattern approach and the aircraft collided with a mountain range. The second car crashed in Azerbaijan, was the cause of design and production failure. In each case, the incident led to many casualties.

I might be wrong but I don't think the world has been destroyed yet?

Doesn't appear to be the best translation in the world. I should have know better when the word translation wasn't translated!  Wink

I just found a different link anyway with a rather unamusing fact.

Passenger death has since become a reality in Iran's air crashes. Between 2000 to 2006, 11 Iranian plane crashes claimed the lives of 700 people.

The question is whether the accidents in Iran are caused by technical problems or crew errors. The An-140 is a modern aircraft and I assume there are no problems with getting spare parts and support from Antonov.

Note: the article from the second link says that the Iran-140 is originally a Russian design.

The aircraft appears to have belonged to Iran Air Tours and was involved in crew training. This is the third An140 write off in Iran and the 4th overall. It is too bad really. The aircraft is modern, ideal for Iranian domestic flights to secondary airports, and is assembled/ mainitained locally. After the crash landing of an An 140, Safiran stopped operating the type. Iranian Police Aviation took over Safiran's remaining two An 140 and two An 140-100 not yet delivered.
