Between June 1966 and February 1968 Iran Air received four Boeing 727-86, followed by five examples of the stretched series 200 in 1974 and 1975. Photographed by Dietrich Eggert from the old visitors terrace in Frankfurt in its first year with Iran Air in February 1969, EP-IRD (sn 19817 / 537) had joined the carrier on 28.02.1968. Named “Shiraz” it served with Iran Air until 21.01.1980, when it was lost after a tragically crash into Elburz mountains near Teheran, perishing all 128 passengers on board.
