A new video reveals that two missiles struck Ukraine International Airlines flight PS752, which crashed shortly after take-off from Tehran, Iran early on January 8.
The video appears to be taken from a security camera on the roof of a building near where the plane was struck. The video, which was originally uploaded to YouTube by an Iranian user early Tuesday morning was verified as authentic by a New York Times investigations team.
The video shows the plane being struck by the first missile, which appeared to result in a small explosion, followed by the second missile strike about 20 seconds later. Neither missile immediately downed the plane, which continued to fly for several minutes and attempted to return to the airport. The new video shows the plane appear to be on fire shortly after being hit by the second missile. A video that emerged last week showed the impact from one of the missiles. All 176 people on the plane, a Boeing 737-800 bound for Kyiv, Ukraine, were killed.
The new video can help explain why the plane's transponder stopped transmitting before the crash, suggesting that it was disabled by the first missile. The crash came hours after Iran fired a barrage of missiles at a military base in Iraq housing US forces. Iranian officials initially denied that it shot down the plane before reversing and confirming that it fired the missiles, blaming human error as the military was on high alert in case of retaliatory strikes.
Iranian officials have said that the plane wandered too close to a military site, but an analysis of transponder data from previous flights to Kyiv, and other flights the morning of January 8, shows that PS752 did not deviate from its normal route or vary significantly from other civil flights that day.

Video of two missiles fired.
That’s quite an accident.
Did they launch from Trump tower.
Democrats, raise your hand if you think the missile was launched from a Trump property.
That’s mighty compassionate and considerate of them. Firing 2 missiles.
The first one may have left survivors. In horrible pain and agony.
The second one removed that possibility.
So Trump forced them to press the button twice . . . . .
This was pointed out right after it happened. The Iranians are blaming it on incompetence, and even with two missiles, I guess thats still a possibility. Or its possible that they really wanted to take out that plane, possibly because of somebody on it...theories abound!
Did they come from the same battery of missiles or different ones?
Everyone already knew there were two missiles from the get-go. It was why there was excellent video of the second impact and why the plane was already on fire in the initial video. People saw the first one then started filming.
I think the one video that may have shown the first hit before the plane started burning was only because a particularly observant person noticed the first launch and had their camera ready.
Well, OK, if you say so.
And yet, American democrats will blame Trump for this.
I think the NYT soon will find the root of this airplane take out occurred in 1619.
Was there someone on that plane that Iran wanted dead?
Was it an accident or did they use the cover of military action to commit murder?
Well no doubt he punched the launch button. Video at 11:15:37
Same batttery, same tracked carrier. That system si designed to automatically launch 2 miussiles.
The first missile exploded in front of the aircraft and likely killed the pilots.
