Iran Air Boeing 727's Amazing Landing at Mehrabad

by Patriot

From the clip description on YouTube: An Iran Air Boeing 727-200, registration EP-IRR performing flight IR-742 from Moscow Sheremetyevo (Russia) to Tehran Imam Khomeini (Iran) with 94 passengers and 19 crew, was on approach to Tehran's Imam Khomeini Airport around 15:20L (11:50Z) when the crew did not receive a down and locked indication for the nose gear and aborted the approach. Following unsuccessful troubleshooting the crew decided to divert to Tehran's Mehrabad Airport where a low approach confirmed the nose gear was not extended. The crew subsequently performed a landing without the nose gear on runway 29L at about 16:00L (12:30Z) and came to a stand still on both main gear and the nose of the aircraft. The aircraft was evacuated, no injuries occurred. The pilot of this flight was captain Hooshang Shahbazi.

Bravo Captain Shahbazi

That was a masterpiece!  Such skill, such a cool hand and head under so much pressure.  It is unfortunate that such talent has to be stuck under such incompetence and stupidity.  That plane should have not been in the air.

Thanks to this pilot.  Many years ago, I flew from Tehran to Isfahan on Topoloff, similar situation.  Thanks to our brave men and women. 

Western countries are illegally hurting Iranian people.
