Because Iran would never use bad mockups, terribly edited photos, and a blissful willingness to believe the planet is populated by idiots in an attempt to fake a major news story. Nope. Not Iran.

Ha! When I was a kid I tried to save up my money to buy that same kit from the back pages of my GI Joe comics!

In mother Iran, you don't crash plane, plane doesn't even fly!

Is it just me, or if you squint really hard does Ackmadajeenidad (I know that's really close to the speeling) look like the villan out of Despicable Me?

Oh, the wheels on the plane go nowhere, nowhere, nowhere

I know the article said that it is fiberglass but, it sure does look like it is a wrapping pulled tight in some areas. It just has that wavy look to it.

It has a Snoy 3.5 gigawatt CD player with the flip face, 2 Garmins (can't trust American technology), a vanity mirror, PS2 and Gamecube hooked up to separate monitors, tape deck, and more switches than the pilot knows what to do with (or can reach).
