The PS752 bitter and unfortunate fate in the plane crash is a heavy grief on the shoulders of many of his classmates in the aviation industry. Amir, Sara and Asal traveled to Iran for holidays. The beautiful family boarded the plane for their home on the morning of December 9, 2020.

We remember them dearly

This is for Asal:

my beautiful Asal. Not many people know your daddy was one of the best aeronautic engineers in Iran. I deeply feel bad to lose you in such a tragic incident. We failed you and other families, because they replaced us with unprofessional people in Iranian Aviation; and I personally fail you again, because the 737 was not strong enough to protect you.
