In an unprecedented accident a pickup truck has collided with ATR-72 plane in Iran’s Yazd airport.
Officials say the incident led to breakage of the turboprop of Tehran-Yazd plane, but all the passengers are safe and sound.
Director General of Yazd Airports says the passengers of the damaged aircraft were sent to Tehran with alternative flights.
The aircraft is one of the new ones purchased after the nuclear deal.
Yazd International Airport is currently the 10th largest airport in the country in terms of air traffic and passengers, with approximately 6,000 passengers annually using approximately 6,000 flights.
