This is one of very few SAL Pioneers surviving worldwide. In March 1958 two Pioneers were sold to Iran, EP-AHE (ex G-AOXP) and EP-AHD (ex G-AOGF). They were operated by the Customs & Monopolies Ministry. EP-AHD was written off in an incident in Nov 1963. The wreck was in a junkyard at Ghale Morghi airport until Feb 2011, along with the wreck of an F-4E. I wanted IRIAF to prevent its scrapping by Tehran`s Municipality. Now the wreck has been saved and moved to IRIAF`s museum at Doshan Tappeh airport.
