Maybe Iran should stop buying old western aircrafts, and finally seal the deal for the Russian Tu-204 aircrafts which will be brand new (the 25 on order). I don't understand why the Iranian goverment keeps delying the order for the new Russian Aircrafts, and keep buying old Airbus aircrafts. As we all know Iran is not allowed to obtain any new western aircrafts!

Now U.S. stops sale of Russian planes to Iran

Iran Times International (Washington, DC), June 18, 2010


Iran can't buy American airplanes because the U.S. government forbids their sale to Iran. Iran cannot buy planes from Europe's Airbus company because they use American engines and other parts and Washington blocks their sale to Iran. Now Iran has been stopped from buying Russian Tupolev jets because they now use a large number of American parts.

Russia's Tupolev company signed a contract in 2007 to sell Iran Air Tour five TU-204 passenger jets. And it has been in active talks with Iran about licensing the assembly of 100 TU204s in Iran.

But the TU-204 comes equipped with an engine made by a Russian company, Aviadvigatel, which works with technology from Pratt & Whitney, one of the two giant American jet engine designers and manufacturers.

Russia's state news agency, ITAR-TASS, last week reported that Aleksey Fedorov, president of the United Aircraft Construction Corp, which makes the Tupolev, told a meeting in Berlin, "We have received from Pratt & Whitney an official letter that practically bans the supply of the TU-204 to Iran."

Fedorov said his company was exploring how to make the TU-204 without American components. Effectively that would mean finding an engine without American parts, which would be difficult in the modern world.

This does not mean the Islamic Republic would be forever shut out of the aircraft market and unable to replace aging planes. The U.S. embargo hits new aircraft sales. But Iran been able to buy even Boeing aircraft on the used airplane market.

In Tehran Saturday, Reza Nakhjevani, head of Iran's Civil Aviation Organization, announced that Tupolev aircraft had been removed from the list of planes that Iranian firms can purchase with the $1 billion of foreign currency recently allocated for the purchase of civil aircraft to update the Iranian commercial fleet.

oh my god what a f...... iranian regime!
Why should Iran buy old Boeing planes when they can't get spare parts for them!?! (Maybe they could buy about 5 very old Boeing planes only for spare parts like Mahan does it for their 747).

thats strange considering that there doesnt seem to be any major damage. Just a replacement and check of the nose and gear should be it right?

The damaged section is not confined to the nose cone. You can see the skin of the aircraft is crumpled right up to the cockpit window. It will not be able to fly unless major repairs to the nose are made. Repairs that are not done at Tabriz. They have taken the airline's name off the side already.
