FAST FIVE: New Video Shows 2 Iranian Missiles Striking Doomed Passenger Jet

Published by on

For the first time, the world can clearly see two missiles – fired from an Iranian military base 8 miles from the plane – strike the plane less than 30 seconds apart.

The footage helped answer a question that had perplexed experts: why did air control lose touch with the plane's transponder just before the crash.

After the strike, the plane appears to have tried to circle back toward Tehran's international airport.

It's unclear how the times verified the video, but the four bylines attached to the story would suggest that it took some serious legwork.

However, whoever uploaded the video best be careful: Iranian media have reported that the man who filmed an earlier video of the missile striking the plane has been arrested.
