Turkish Passenger Jet Reportedly Crashes in Western Iran

Iran plane crash victims are Turkish socialite friends coming home after Dubai bachelorette party

Iran's state-run news agency says that the Canadian-made aircraft was flying from Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates to the Turkish city of Istanbul.

Local residents who had reached the site of the crash said there appeared to be no survivors and victims' bodies were burnt, ISNA news agency reported, citing Mojtaba Khaledi, spokesman for Iran's emergency services.

Reza Jafarzadeh, spokesman for Iran's Civil Aviation Organization, told state television the jet had crashed in the near the southwestern city of Shahr-e Kord.

Turkish news agency Dogan identified the plane as a Bombardier CL604, and the country's transport ministry said it belonged to a company named Basaran Holding.

The plane was believed to be owned by her father's company and carried Miss Basaran, seven of her friends and three crew members.

It added that the plane took off from Sharjah International Airport in the UAE.

Calls to Basaran Holding's office in Istanbul went unanswered.

A little over an hour later, it rapidly gained altitude and then dropped drastically within minutes, according to FlightRadar24, a flight-tracking website.

Earlier in February, an Iranian ATR-72, a twin-engine turboprop used for short-distance regional flying, crashed in southern Iran, killing all 65 people on board.

Her public Instagram page showed her standing next to an aircraft with the unique tail code TC-TRB - the same as the plane that went down and images from inside the aircraft.
