Default My Iranian Fleet Grows

I have an interest in developing deregulated markets and Iran has a really vibrant scene, partly because of all the old aircraft it is forced to use.

Anyway I've been gradually supplementing my Iranian fleet and after some recent cabinet movements it has some more space to grow. Here it is at the moment with the Aseman 727 being the latest addition.

Hoping to see some more Iranian metal soon - Meraj Air A300 for example. Would love some Fokker 100s too.

They were all released before I started collecting with the 707 and 747 in a twinpack. Iran wasn't until recently a feature area at all. There is supposed to be just 1 or 2 Iran Airs so I'm already over my proper limit. The A300 was supposed to be my sole Iranian representative.

I can't buy everything - sadly!!!

It's difficult to impose limits on oneself when there are such delicious possibilities. iran is almost unique now in the world being forced to continue flying so many classic airliners.
For some inexplicable reason I passed on the SAHA 707 when it came out. I can't imagine what was going through my head!

Yes the Iran air 727's are very hard to find, surprised the Aseman hasn't sold out already.
Saha air and Mahan air also very hard to find.
Fun fact: aseman means 'sky' in Persian.
