Developing: Local Iranian Claims to Take Photo of Missile Part Near Ukrainian Passenger Plane Crash Site in Tehran

The first footage was released this morning at the crash site of the Ukrainian plane that that went down outside of Tehran moments after takeoff on Wednesday morning.

An Ukrainian Airlines plane carrying 180 passengers and crew crashed Wednesday morning just minutes after takeoff from Tehran, Iran!
This comes on the same night that Iran fired a dozen missiles at US bases in Iraq.

Al Hadath Dubai News reported a missile took down the Ukrainian flight.

Al Hadath: Preliminary images of the Ukrainian plane suspected of being hit by an Iranian missile

This morning Iran refused to turn over the black box from the downed plane.

Via Reuters:

Iran will not give the black box of the crashed Ukrainian airliner to planemaker Boeing, the head of Tehran’s civil aviation organization was quoted as saying on Wednesday.

Ali Abedzadeh also said it was not clear which country Iran would send the box to so that its data could be analyzed, semi-official Mehr news agency reported.

Ukrainian officials say the Boeing 737-800 involved in the crash is one of the best planes in the Ukrainian fleet.

And now this…

A local Iranian reportedly discovered  a “control segment” of a TOR M1 missile near the the Ukrainian plane crash site.

More on the missile segment near the plane (translated) “One of the locals was the first image of a piece inside the water crossbars near the Ukrainian aircraft crash site to @AshkanMonfared_ send that clearly the control section of a tour I am 1/”

And now there are reports of riot police guarding the crash site.

From a translated tweet. “I’m not sure though, it’s quite unlikely that the warhead would remain intact after impact.” Actually what is laying in the culvert is the guidance and tracking head. The tip of any smart bomb, air to air missile, guided missile, etc., is a tracking head of some sort. These can be optical, heat seeking, radar, GPS guided, laser, etc. If you look at both pictures, they are the same type of head. The fins move to help guide the missile on target. They both have the same type of fins and pattern assembly. Also, look at the picture of the missile in the launcher, between the left fin and the center fin facing us, there is a round access port/screw head. On the picture of the expended head, that same port is on the right hand side between the right fin and the center fin.

Usually after a sam is used, the head and the tail will be found.
