Ukrainian investigators have blamed “human factors” for the loss of an Antonov An-140 turboprop during a December 23 charter flight from Kharkov, Ukraine, to
Isfahan, Iran. The airplane, UR14003, operated by Kharkov-based Aeromist-Kharkov, crashed into a mountain near the village of Bargabad on approach to Isfahan airport. All 44 people on board died in the crash, including six crewmembers.
