For the first time in Iranian aviation history, IAMI (Iranian Aircraft Manufacturing Industry) has converted one of retired Iran Air Tours Tu-154Ms into a testbed aircraft. You can also see front section of a RF-5A has attached to the vertical stablizer of the airplane, they did this job to provide some real condition to test Iranian made ejection seats in near future. IAMI has also planned to equip the airplane with a mounted pylon under its fuselage to carry Iranian future UAVs in their real condition aerodynamic tests.

Crazy Iranians, but this is one cool modification. I think Boeing or Airbus should do the same thing and sell this kind of a seat and make people feel like they are flying the plane. This would be like super business class seat.
