Narrative:
On February 20, 1986 a Fokker F-27 of Iran Asseman Airlines (EP-ANA, cn 10554) was attacked by an Iraqi fighter plane. The aircraft was damaged, but landed safely and was later repaired. EP-ANA was later written-off in an accident on October 4, 1990. Iran claimed that the EP-ANA was actually shot down, killing all 49 passengers and crew on board.
Rumours at Fokker say another F-27 (presumably EP-IOK) was blown up to let international press believe the accident had happened.
