TEHRAN— An Iranian fighter plane crashed near the central city of Isfahan on Saturday after its engine failed, but both pilots survived, IRNA news agency said.
The pilots were taken to a local hospital, it said, adding there was a technical failure in the engine of the Grumman F-14 Tomcat that led to the crash. Iran’s air force has an assortment of U.S.-made military aircraft purchased before the 1979 Islamic Revolution and the Tomcat F-14 is American-made. It also has Russian-made MiG and Sukhoi planes.
