TEHRAN, Iran December 30, 2012
A small American commercial plane left Iran Sunday after it was repaired following an emergency landing at an Iranian airport this month, state TV reported.

Wonder if this crash showed up on satellite or any other monitoring device?
bttt - pilots DO talk amongst themselves.
