On Jan 26, 2012, the Iranian Air Force scrambled
after a "UFO"
near Bushehr, in Southern Iran. Five minutes into the flight the aircraft disappeared from radar. The wreckage was later found, with the bodies of
the RIO and pilot, both of whom were killed in the crash.
The Iranian government gave the cause as an unspecified technical issue. Now it's coming out that the aircraft in question was one of the best
maintained aircraft in the Iranian Air Force inventory, as it was a QRA aircraft near their only nuclear reactor.
It has come out, through apparently reliable sources, to TheAviationist, that the aircraft was actually shot down by Iranian Revolutionary Guard AAA
units near the base. The claim has been made that they are totally unfamiliar with their own aircraft, and shoot at anything "scary", which pretty
much includes anything moving fast. That way they can't say they didn't fight.
In the early morning hours of Jan. 26, 2012, an Iranian F-14A (serial 3-6062 that can be seen here) was scrambled to intercept a ‘UFO’ near
the port city of Bushehr in south of Iran. Less than 5 minutes into the flight, the mighty ‘Tomcat’ disappeared from the ground control radar. The
pilot and RIO both lost their lives in the crash.
So far the Iranian regime has attributed the cause of this terrible incident to some unknown technical failures.
But that was not the case.
That's an interesting military tactic there, shooting at anything "scary".
