All 168 passengers and crew have died in a Caspian Airlines plane crash in northern Iran, officials say.
Wreckage was spread over a large area in a field in Jannatabad village, Qazvin province, about 75 miles (120km) north-west of Tehran, state TV said.
The Tupolev plane was flying from the Iranian capital to Yerevan in Armenia, with mostly Iranian passengers.
The cause of the crash, which happened soon after take-off, was unknown. One witness said it plummeted from the sky.

The one thing very odd about this crash is it is the second plane in history to have nearly disappeared upon impact. The hole in the ground looks very similar to the 9/11 crash in Shanksville. I woke up to this news, and thought to myself "they are lying" and then they said there were eye witnesses that saw the plane, that there was hardly no wreckage. I thought, is it possible, we are that close to exposing the 9/11 fraud and the PTB need a similar crash to use as proof that all people that think an airliner can't disappear upon impact, don't know what they are talking about.
I'm not saying any scenario happened or didn't happen but this is a conspiracy site so I thought I would throw out this scenario.

I'm baffled by this one. News reports seem to indicate the plane was obliterated into tiny pieces, leaving nothing but a smoldering crater... yet CNN says 152 bodies have been returned to their families.
The plane “disintegrated into pieces,” said Col. Masood Jafari Nasab, security commander of Qazvin. Video of the crash site showed a huge crater in the earth scattered with charred pieces of the plane and tattered passports. “The aircraft all of a sudden fell out of the sky and exploded on impact, where you see the crater,” a witness told Iran’s government-backed Press TV from the crash site.
