Iran Air B737?

Hi,
I'm searching for a picture of Iran Air B737, but I can not find it. Anybody knows where can I get it from?
Thanks!

Aren't these 737-200s the Iraqi Airways jets that Iran has been "using" since the first Gulf war?

Thank you KAL744.

IslandHopper, No those are not Iraqi! There are still some 747s in Tehran airport but nobody uses them.

Aha...I just checked airlinerlist.com, and there are three 737-200s that Iran Air flies that Boeing delivered to them brand new in the early 70s. These are the ones you want pictures of I assume.

But it also lists two ex-Iraqi 737-200s parked in Teheran. I heard rumors that Iran Air had "inherited" them and was using them, but the database suggests that they never flew for Iran Air. Have you ever seen these jets parked there? I will notify the list of their status.

Pouyazad,
have you perhaps seen 737's EP-IGA / IGD recently. Because these are supposed to be ex-Iraqi aircraft.

Those are the two listed as stored at Teheran in Iraqi colors (or painted white by now). There was no mention of Iran Air ever flying them.

Yes, but why (if not) didn't Iran Air use them???
