Fokker 100, according to Fars News Agency.

Quote:
The semi-official Fars news agency said of the 105 passengers and crew on board, at least 50 had survived.

The IranAir plane was flying from the capital Tehran when it came down near the north-western city of Orumiyeh - which was its final destination.

I hope the best and my deepest condolences.

An IranAir passenger jet crashed Sunday in the country's northwest, breaking the aircraft into several pieces. Around half of the 95 people on board survived with light injuries, but heavy snow hampered rescue efforts, Iranian media reported.

The Boeing-727 operated by Iran's national airline crashed shortly before it was to land in the city of Orumiyeh, 460 miles (700 kilometers) northwest of the capital, Tehran, said Abbas Mosayebi, spokesman of the Iranian civil aviation organization, state TV reported.

Why doesnt Iran Air retire the 727s and Fokkers and invest in some A320s or maybe in Embraiers or ATRs. A 727 is like a death trap and PIA (Pakistan Airlines) also recently grounded its entire Fokker fleet and replaced it with ATRs and 737s.

Iran Air's financial status is quite bad at the moment they don't have the money to buy so many new planes. But there are rumors, that Iran Air wants to go public to get money for new planes.

I would say that you are completely wrong. Iran air was state owned but it turned into a private company a year or two ago. I would highly doubt they have the money to buy aircraft as they have been attempting to get aircraft and have already got a few parked up around the world as well as a complete fleet overhaul on everything.

I dont know where you got your information from, but from the evidence I wouldnt believe a word you said

Actually money has not a lot to do with it. The most important reason why Iran Air isn't purchasing any new Airbus or Boeing planes is because of the trade sanctions which prohibits Iran purchasing any products from American or European manufacturers.

They can buy planes via a third party like Ukraine or Armenia like Mahan Air does - an ex Air Transat (Canada) A310-300 with reg. C-GTSD will join Mahan's fleet soon.

Sanctions are the reason Iran Air doesn't have newer aircrafts.. If Iran Air is able to get new aircrafts or slightly used ones via a third party then Iran Air needs to scrap the flying death traps which they own.
(Nearly the entire fleet).

What Iran Air should do is via a third party is buy the new Russian Superjet 100 and Tupolev Tu-204-300 to replace the current death trap fleet they own.

Sadly I don't think any of the above is going to happen anytime soon.

I think it was one or two years ago when Iran Air announced, that they will put the 747SP and 747-100 out of service in 2011, but I don't think they will do so...

No, the russian engines of the TU-204 have got parts made by PW (US). They refuse to sell it to Iran. The other engine made by RR (UK) has also western parts which makes it impossible for Iran to buy it.

They didnt until recently. Ironically the much lauded US help for the Russian aviation industry could be its downfall. Iran would be the biggest customer by far but they are told by PW they cannot do business.

After months of waiting , the first Iran Air boeing 747-200 with new Design ( both pale blue logo and removed belly) is seen out of hangar.It is expected the plane is named ''Persian Gulf '' as done for other 747s recently.

And what about Antonov -148? I heard ambiguous information relating this issue: Iran(HESA) is on the list to purchase 50 of the AN-148, but on the other hand there are rumors that purchase is canceled.
