Iran-bound private plane missing: Turkish official

AFP: A private plane bound for Iran has gone missing after taking off from the northeastern Turkish city of Trabzon, a local official said Monday. ANKARA, May 14, 2007 (AFP) – A private plane bound for Iran has gone missing after taking off from the northeastern Turkish city of Trabzon, a local official said Monday.

Rescue teams have launched a search on the possibility that it might have crashed, but have so far found no sign of it, a spokeswoman for the Trabzon governor’s office told AFP.

“There is also the possibility that it might have gone somewhere else than its end destination,” the spokeswoman said on condition of anonymity.

Governor Nuri Okutan told the Anatolia news agency that the plane, bound for the northwestern Iranian city of Tabriz, took off from Trabzon on Sunday with two pilots — a British national and a Pakistani national — on board.

The plane, which had set out from capital Ankara, landed at Trabzon on Thursday for refuelling and was forced to wait until Sunday to resume flight due to adverse weather conditions, he added.
