A U.S.-registered Dassault Falcon 900 that was forced to make an emergency landing at an airport in southern Iran approximately three weeks ago was allowed to take off this past Sunday after repairs were completed. The trijet was reportedly en route from Abu Dhabi to Rotterdam when it landed at Ahvaz after what was described as a technical failure. The passenger and crew of the bizjet soon left Iran, while a French support team from Abu Dhabi arrived to perform repairs. As a member of ICAO, Iran is obligated to come to the aid of civilian aircraft in distress.
