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"

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

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.

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.

Its interesting, it looks like there is an engine running. That is the only way to get that right slat up.

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.

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.

Iranian military and some other industrial complexes are still stuck in the 70's, evident from the tomcat and the bus.

This old bird, far style tractor, and older Mercedes bus, makes this one of a kind photo.
