The Iranian media is being quoted as saying that the accident was caused by a technical flaw.
The US restricts air services over Iran and Iraq

After the latest attack, the US has banned any American flight over Iran and Iraq with immediate effect. The US fears that Iran-backed rebel organizations may target American airplanes. A few days ago, the US intelligence agencies issued a warning that the rebels had missile aircraft.


According to Iran’s government news agency, the accident occurred due to technical problem.

A three-year-old Boeing 737-800. Apparently fight data shows that it only reached an altitude of 2.4 km, before suddenly disappearing, some three minutes after take-off.

Pure speculation. Way too early to be able to know this.

An airplane just a few minutes into its flight will normally be carrying a fair old amount of fuel. If the plane "goes into the ground like a dart" (quote from Billy Connelly) 99.999% sure those fuel tanks rupture, hence the fields on fire. We will have to wait on the investigation results but highly unlikely that USA special forces were positioned deep inside Iran tasked with shooting down commercial aircraft.

Sure, but it was in flames as it came down, but yes
wait on the investigation results

but No Where in my Post was it Blamed on
USA special forces
or anyone else.

Hell they didn't even see the missiles coming, let alone shoot any down. How incompetent is that ?

The inference was there Buddy. The plane plunging down in flames etc. Lets just leave it at that and see what the next couple of weeks brings. Pretty sure the Persians are not as (don't know how to put this politely) stupid to take on the USA and its Arab Allies. Saudi and the UAE all detest Iran. Lets just see what the next move is.

Plane goes up to 7000’in about two minutes after take off seems pretty normal to me. Plane then turns into fireball then crashes....not normal to me. Plane has puncture holes in fuselage seems like a SAM took this plane down. I am not even a armchair pilot however I do know where the good seats are and what airlines have the best looking help. Note to self IF you are in the middle of a live fire exercise between Iran and the US don’t go down range without clearance.

If, and thats a big IF, it was a missile the Iranian Revolutionary Guard probably did the shooting. Thats why Iran refuses to turn over the black box.

Total speculation because what else could it be this is in fact Udonmap. I cant think of a worse time to be in that airspace It’s not like during that exact moment Iran didn’t send a dozen ballistic missiles through that airspace towards US troops in Iraq. Iran then and now is on the verge of having its ass completely smoked and the resulting total command and control chaos remember Baghdad and how every inch of sky was painted with Snakbar rounds? Flying in that airspace with a civilian cargo without coordination of the trigger pullers is completely fing stupid. I mean what were these airline people thinking possibly it was to early in the morning in Kiev and management hadn’t engaged caffeine yet.

Sorry Tigerryan
From the photos of the crash site that are available to public view there is hardly anything that Joe Public could identify as the fuselage. The plane was totaled. Could well be that the 'well trained' Iranian Guard air defence mob mistook a slow flying commercial aircraft coming from Tehran as an USA missile but unlikely. We may never know if the black box info is not released but it is not worth decimating an ancient culture on speculation.
