Video of 2009 Iranian jet crash surfaces

(By David S Morgan, CBS News) - A previously-unseen video posted on YouTube apparently shows the 2009 crash of an Iranian military jet outside Tehran in 2009.

The accident in which the Ilyushin IL-76MD went down in flames occurred following a military air show and parade on September 22, 2009.

The video was taken by the crew of a C-130 that was recording an F-4 Phantom II. Off in the distance, the Iranian plane can be seen tumbling to Earth and crashing in a giant fireball.
