Last moments of Ukrainian Boeing burning during minute-long descent before it crashes in Iran
The plane remains airborne for about a minute before crashing and exploding in a massive fireball on the horizon.

The causes of the crash remain unknown and the official investigation has only begun. The incident, however, has already prompted allegations that the aircraft might have been downed by an Iranian surface-to-air missile, though no actual proof for that has been provided yet. Tehran, for its part, has firmly rejected such accusations.

“The Ukrainian aircraft was on fire for more than one minute,” Ali Abedzadeh, head of Iran’s Civil Aviation Organization, said. “If it had been hit by a missile, it would have exploded immediately.
