American warplanes flied close to the Iranian airliner in Persian Gulf. According to the reports from a direct observer, two American military aircrafts disturbed the Aseman Airline flight carrying more than 70 passengers.
The flight from Lamerd town in Iran to Kuwait took off on Wednesday. The passenger said the warplanes flied too close to the airliner making the passengers anxious and stressful. It also led to sharp shakes to the airliner, agitating the passengers even more.
The warplanes had American flags and escorted the airliner, one on the side and the other beneath, for minutes. The reasons behind the act is still unclear and no official report has been dispatched yet from the two countries.
The ATR 72 flight 6521 airliner took off at 1 o’clock in the afternoon at Lamerd. The news is reported in Hassan Shemshadi’s Instagram page. Mr. Shemshadi, the Iranian correspondent and reporter, quotes the news directly from a passenger of the flight.
The incident is reminiscent of Iran Air Flight 655 disaster in July 1988. The flight was shot down in Persian Gulf by United States Navy guided missile cruiser USS Vincennes killing all 290 people on board.
