An Iranian military plane crashed Monday at the Mehrabad airport in Tehran, Fars news agency reported. ( dpa )
The plane was trying to land in the capital's domestic airport but crashed due to a technical defect, the report said without giving further details.
The pilot and co-pilot could however jump out of the plane by parachute and reportedly remained unharmed.
Fars had reported earlier that fire broke out in parts of the Mehrabad airport which seems to have been because of the crash.
