Cargo plane crashes in Iran with 10 on board

The cargo plane that crashed in Iran reportedly departed from Kyrgyzstan's Manas airport

A Boeing VC-137B, a military version of the 707, named Freedom One is seen at the Pima Air and Space Museum May 13, 2015 in Tucson, Arizona.

Iran's air force said in a statement that the fate of the crew, including their possible 'martyrdom, ' is under investigation.

A cargo plane made an emergency landing in an airport near Tehran, before overshooting the runway and crashing into nearby buildings, Iranian media report.

It then skidded off the runway and smashed into houses before exploding into flames.

"We do not know yet whether it was an Iranian or foreign cargo plane", a local official told TV.

The release of the teaser coincides with confirmation of April 14 as the date for the final season of the hugely popular show. We do know the final installment will consist of six episodes that are basically like movies, HBO boss Richard Plepler said.

Images carried by Iran's state-run media showed the burned-out tail of the plane sticking out, surrounding by charred homes.

Kyrgyzstan's Manas airport says the cargo plane that crashed in Iran on Monday had flown from this airport, but it belonged to Iran's Payam Air.

The plane took off from Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, and was to have headed to the Payam airport, also located outside the capital.

It was later confirmed it belonged to Iran's air force. The four-engine, narrow-body aircraft were built until 1979.

Saha Airlines' Boeing 707s suffered a previous fatal crash in April 2005, when a flight coming from the Kish island crash-landed at Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, killing three passengers.
