In actuality, these assertions are unfounded and untrue. These pictures date from 2020 (the Persian calendar year 1399), when severe weather near Salman Shahr caused an Iranian training plane to crash during an operation. The Iranian president’s helicopter crash is unrelated to these pictures. So, the claim that the image is from the Helicopter crash of Iranian President Ebrahim Raïssi is not true at all. We visited tinn, which posted about this on May, 2019. A training plane that was flying from Bisheh Kolah to Tehran.
