Iran: Cargo plane crashes with at least nine on board

A Boeing 707 cargo plane flying from the Central Asian nation of Kyrgyzstan has crashed in Iran's Alborz province after it overshot the runway during landing.

The Fars news agency, considered close to the military, said there were 16 people onboard and that only the flight engineer had survived.

Authorities did not immediately offer a reason for the crew's decision to land there, though they said the crew had declared an emergency prior to land.

"It exited the runway during the landing and caught fire after hitting the wall at the end of the runway", the army statement said.

It is not clear who owned the plane.

IRIB initially said there were 10 people onboard.

The chances seem high at this point that Murray, who projects to be one of the first quarterbacks taken, will enter the draft. That would be taking special treatment to a new level, but MLB thinks that highly of Murray and wants him in baseball.

Her statement contradicted reports by Iranian media saying the plane belonged to Kyrgyzstan.

It showed footage of burning wreckage in a wooded area.

A spokeswoman for Kyrgyzstan's Manas airport said the plane, en route from Kyrgyzstan's Manas airport, belonged to Iran's Payam Air.

Iranians often use the word "martyrdom" for those who die in war or national service. The air force does operate Boeing 707s.

Saha Airlines operated one of the world's last commercial flights of the Boeing 707, which was first manufactured in 1958 and helped usher in the jet age.
