I love the antiqueness of this picture. Esp the water air coolers in the building behind.......

A visitor from United States posted Sun March 7, 2010:
This old bird, far style tractor, and older Mercedes bus, makes this one of a kind photo.

A visitor from United States posted Sat September 26, 2009:
Iranian military and some other industrial complexes are still stuck in the 70's, evident from the tomcat and the bus.

A visitor from Iran, Islamic Republic Of posted Fri September 4, 2009:
You can taste the power of persian cats in a real war. the appearance is old but be sure that all of our tomcats are hungry for hunt.

Still on top!

Yes, I believe the engine is running or it just came back from an engine test run. There is a foreign object FOD screen installed on the visible engine intake.

A visitor from United States posted Mon July 27, 2009:
Its interesting, it looks like there is an engine running. That is the only way to get that right slat up.

A visitor from Australia posted Sat July 25, 2009:
Great photo. I love the Iranian planes; it's one of the few countries with a real mix of eastern & western aircraft. The best of both really.

A visitor from United States posted Sat July 25, 2009:
Outstanding, rare shot of one of the remaining legacies of the old US alliance with the Shah. Thanks for posting it. Looks like the old Tomcat has seen better days, but that Mercedes-Benz bus seems to be in excellent condition. Greetings from Atlanta.

Unique and special to see the Iranian Air Force flying U.S. made equipment. Is this a sign of things to come???

I would actually pay to work on this Cat !
Reason ? - This picture and the beauty of the Tomcat !

A visitor from Germany posted Fri July 24, 2009:
Open canopy on the building behind and on the former fighter plane, and everything arount rotting away. Nothing to be proud of IRIAF!!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu July 23, 2009:

Look likes Tomcat goes to the street!

A visitor from Mauritius posted Thu July 23, 2009:
WOW...Seems nice to seat in a tomcat and being towed, That guy is enjoying alot. Anyway, I feel depressed when I see our tomcats like an old lady which was a queen some years ago but now needs help to move from this side to that side. Better the army leave them in rest... "Mohammad"
