Tehran, 22 September: The public relations office of the Islamic Republic of Iran's Air Force has issued a statement saying that the crash of an aircraft in Qarchak [area] in Varamin [south of Tehran] was not related with today's military parade. According to a Mehr correspondent, the deputy head of the public relations office of the Islamic Republic of Iran's Air Force for cultural affairs said that the air manoeuvres staged by the Air Force units during today's parade were successful and the crash of an aircraft in Qarchak in Varamin had nothing to do with today's parade which marked the beginning of Sacred Defence Week [anniversary of the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq war] and was held beside the mausoleum of the founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran [Imam Khomeyni].
Iran's president stages show of strength, bravado before U.N. trip
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was his combative, rhetorical self: threatening to cut the hands off would-be invaders and claiming that the U.S. military presence in Iraq and Afghanistan was an insult to the region.
His remarks came during a military parade that featured jet fighters and missiles capable of reaching Israel and Europe.

I wonder if the aircraft gathered its intelligence before they shot it down.
Perhaps this was a reconnaissance mission performed by Israel or the US - it could also be that a drone was being used to test Iranian defensive capabilities (It was bright and shining, and so was hardly a demonstration of stealth).
The Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) was completely destroyed by the country’s new air defence system, the report said. BAZTAB has learned that the bright object might have been a pilotless drone.
Few months ago, the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) confirmed reports that its drones were conducting reconnaissance flights over the Iranian sky.
Some sources, however, claimed that the operation could have been part of an exercise to test the combat alertness and power of Iran’s air defence system.
