As many members of airliners.net will recall it is well over a year since 77 people lost their lives in the tragic Iran Air Boeing 727 Flight 277 disaster:

Iranair Crash (by cedarjet Jan 9 2011 in Civil Aviation)

Shockingly there has still been NO EXPLANATION by the Iran Civil Aviation Organization into the cause of the crash, and they have remained silent since the incident. The CAO's silence would appear to suggest that they are hoping that the incident will gradually be forgotten about, and conveniently swept under the carpet without any awkward questions being asked or explanations having to be given. One can only feel a tremendous sense of sympathy for the relatives and loved ones of the 77 souls who perished, for there to exist such utter disregard for the value of human life.

With the recent sad and tragic crash of a Bhoja Air Boeing 737-200 in Pakistan, it is reassuring in a way to see that the authorities are taking positive actions to hold to account those ultimately responsible for the airlines operations, and have launched a criminal investigation into the incident:

Lets hope that the Pakistani aviation authorities can quickly identify the cause(s) of this accident and take the necessary preventative measures to reduce any possible safety risks that may exist.

For a person who claims that Iran's aviation standards are on a par with Australia and New Zealand, by remaining silent on the cause of the deaths of 77 people the head of Iran's CAO, Reza Nakhjavani appears to have a very strange way of backing that up:

Very sad memories of hearing the news from Iran and posting it on a.net. I later learned how much effort Iran Air's hard-pressed maintenance team expending putting the aircraft through a difficult (due to US-led sanctions) D-check which took over four months. The loss of human life was by far the greater tragedy but losing the aircraft after doing all that work and sourcing parts was a blow to IR, their hardworking technicians most of all.

You've got to wonder about the measures that Iran Air is (or isn't) taking in terms of an aging airplane maintenance program on their 30+ year old Boeing 727's?

Reza Nakhjavani has definitely been dismissed as the head of the Iran Civil Aviation Organization (CAO) although the full details surrounding his dismissal have yet to be announced:
