An Iranian fighter jet crashed Tuesday in southern Iran near the country's nuclear power plant that is to start up over the weekend, a semi-official news agency reported. The two pilots ejected safely.
The Fars agency quoted local government official Gholam Reza Keshtkar as saying one of Iranian airforce's F-4 planes crashed about four miles (six kilometers) north of the city of Bushehr. The city is located 745 miles (1,200 kilometers) south of the capital, Tehran.
What the media is not reporting, as far as I can tell, is that this is the second plane crash near Bushehr this month. The first was a drone that crashed nearby, causing much panic among people who live near there, already antsy about an Israeli or US strike.
If I was a conspiracy theorist, I would be wondering if there is any software on board these planes that can be remotely controlled by, say, someone over the border. Although if there was, this would not be the time to show your hand.
