TEHRAN (AFP) Jun 21, 2004
An Iranian Air Force F-14 fighter plane has crashed during a training flight, killing the two crew on board, the official news agency IRNA reported Monday.

The jet, bought from the the United States prior to the 1979 Islamic revolution, crashed while it was trying to land at a base near the central city of Isfahan.

Most of Iran's commercial and military planes are of US origin, and the country has a hard time finding spare parts due to a US embargo.

The report said the crash was being investigated.
