Heavy snow creates rare incident in Airport
Heavy snow has created havoc in Tehran, from traffic congestions to power cuts in parts of the capital. But, today also saw a rare incident at Mehrabad Airport. An Iran Air Fokker 100 tail-heavy with snow lost its balance, causing its nose to lift up into the air. It was as if the plane had pulled a wheelie and was doing a catwalk.
