MISC | Iran CAO Acquires 2nd Falcon 2000EX Through US!

Iran CAO Acquires 2nd Falcon 2000EX Through US!
The Civil Aviation Organization of Iran has recently acquired its second Dassault Falcon 2000EX:

What is truly amazing is that the aircraft was owned by a UK based company called the Quinn Group (http://www.quinn-group.com/index.cfm) with the sale subsequently being handled by a Florida-based private jet dealership:

It's not yet clear how much the CAO paid for the aircraft, but it is rumored that they paid over $30million for the 2004 Falcon 2000EX that they purchased in late 2010, therefore likely paid a similar amount for G-KWIN / M-ABFF

Here is G-KWIN / M-ABFF outside the Iran Aseman Airlines hanger at Tehran Mehrabad Airport still with the foreign registration:

If they keep this up there will be a third one joining sometime in 2014!

I wonder how long till the Falcon crashes once the aircraft is in Iran? Sadly till Iranian government changes for the better no matter what the aviation sector tries to do it will be ridden with safety issues in Iran.
