An Iranian traveler plane wound up paunch down in the center of a thruway after purportedly sliding off the runway during a messed up landing.

Two of the 136 travelers on board endured leg wounds in the episode in the city of Mahshahr, surgeons said.

The Caspian Airlines McDonnell Douglas MD-83 was flying there from Tehran.

State TV cited a common aeronautics official as saying that the pilot “set down the airplane past the point of no return and this made him miss the runway”.

This “made the airplane overshoot the runway and stop in a road” beside the air terminal, Mohammad Reza Rezaei included.

A journalist who was ready the airplane said that the back wheel of the plane had severed and that the plane had slipped on its fuselage.

Iran’s Civil Aviation Organization said an examination was in progress.

Iran has a poor aeronautics security record.

Sixty-six individuals were executed in a plane accident in February 2019, while handfuls were murdered when an IranAir plane broke into pieces after arriving in 2011.

The EU has either prohibited or confined two Iranian aircrafts from using its airspace over safety concerns.

Iran had planned to upgrade its ageing fleet after years of sanctions were lifted as part of the 2015 nuclear deal signed with world powers. However, the US Treasury revoked licences for companies to sell passenger aircraft to Iran after President Donald Trump left the agreement in 2018.

Monday’s incident in Mahshahr comes two weeks after a Ukrainian International Airlines Boeing 737-800 was mistakenly shot down by Iran’s armed forces near Tehran, killing all 176 people on board.
