I never knew anyone who stands around filming a random night sky waiting for a plane to blow up.

The video is all over twitter. Whoever took and released it has a death sentence. I hope they are already outside Iran.

Our satellite intel picked up signals of the ground radar being turned on & detected infrared blips of 2 missile launches, probably SA-15s (TOR), followed shortly by another infrared blip of an explosion.

Nothing random about that night. He was probably trying to film US aircraft on bombing runs.

Almost exactly what happened in Ukraine. I don’t imagine the Iranians do a lot of training on their mobile SAM launchers.

Was anyone on it linked to Burisma or Naftogaz?

More proof that Russian surface to air missiles works good against civilian airliners.

I think it was John Kerry taking the video on his phone after his buddies launched the missiles.

Please, folks... don’t fly a Ukrainian airline in a war zone with Russian hardware in the vicinity.

Several curious things about this.
Why was a Ukraine commercial airlines making a stopover in Iran?
Why were 63 Canadian’s on such a flight?
Who got off and on that flight from within Iran?
If it was simply a refueling stopover why Iran?
