On January 27th, an Iranian passenger plane, from Caspian Airlines, made an emergency landing in the middle of a street in the city of Mahshahr.

All 135 people on board were unharmed and evacuated safely, a spokesman for Iran’s civil aviation agency, Reza Jafarzadeh, was cited by Fars News Agency.

Caspian Airlines Flight 6936 departed from the capital city, Tehran, early on January 27th and was set to land at Mahshahr Airport, in the country’s southwest, when it landed onto Mahshahr-e-Ahwaz highway, according to Fars.

There are numerous videos showing the plane landed, and the passengers leaving it, helping each other. Emergency responders soon arrived on the scene, with firefighters spraying water onto the plane.

Caspian Airlines is based in Tehran. Its last major accident was in 2009, when a commercial flight crashed outside the city of Qazvin in northwestern Iran. All 153 passengers and 15 crew members on board died.

It is unlikely that the incident is in any way related to the downed Ukrainian Airlines flight PS752 that was downed in the early hours of January 8th and all 176 passengers and crew on board died.

There were reports and footage showing that the US Embassy in Baghdad was shelled on the evening of January 26th, and Iran is likely to be blamed for the attack, however it would only come down to speculation and it is unlikely that the Caspian Airlines flight was sabotaged.

There are still no reports clarifying what exactly went wrong, but the videos and photographs show that the back of the plane appears to be partially burned, on the left side, around one of the engines.
