EP-IRA Iran Air Boeing 727-86 (sn 19171 / ln 276) „Isfahan“

In July 1971 Dietrich Eggert made this photo of EP-IRA, the first Boeing 727-86 (sn 19171 / 276) of Iran Air. This example made its first flight on 25.05.1966 and was delivered on June 6, 1966. With the name of former 16th century Persians capital and today Irans third-large city “Isfahan”, EP-IRA ended up after 17 years with Iran Air after having an accident during ground trials when it struck an obstacle which ruptured front wheels and right main gear.
