A fighter jet has crashed in northwest Iran and killed two pilots and a civilian, the country's state-run news agency reported Monday.
IRNA said the F-5 fighter crashed into a stadium in a residential area of Tabriz and two pilots and a citizen were killed.
Authorities are investigating the disaster, the report said.
Iran’s air force has an assortment of US-made military aircraft purchased before the 1979 revolution. It also has Russian-made MiG and Sukhoi planes. Decades of Western sanctions have made it hard to maintain the aging fleet.
