U.S. Issued No-Fly Order Over Iran, Iraq Hours Before Ukrainian Plane Downed
FAA stopped U.S. commercial traffic over the region, ‘may well have saved American lives’
By: Washington Free Beacon, January 9, 2020:
Just hours before a Ukrainian plane was shot down Wednesday over Iran, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration issued a no-fly order over Iran and Iraq, potentially saving scores of American lives.
A Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) warning of potential hazards along flight routes in the war-torn region was first issued Tuesday evening by the FAA, just before a Ukrainian plane crashed near Tehran. U.S. officials believe Iran may have mistakenly shot down the plane in its airspace as tensions with the United States hit new levels.
“Our NOTAMs were published roughly three hours before the accident,” a FAA spokesman confirmed to the Washington Free Beacon Thursday.
The no-fly order outlined “flight restrictions that prohibit U.S. civil aviation operators from operating in the airspace over Iraq, Iran, and the waters of the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman.”
