A New York Times correspondent snapped a picture of plane N604EP in Tehran Airport, and that’s where the questions started: US companies can’t do business in Iran, and you can’t bring an American-made and registered plane there without specific approval from the government. (Technically, flying a plane to another country could be considered exporting it.) But so far, the officials in charge of enforcing these rules have not commented on the plane’s presence there or whether they are investigating it. Nor has Iran’s diplomatic mission to the United Nations. Update: Iran’s foreign ministry (Persian) now says the plane is owned by Ghana and was ferrying senior government officials to a meeting; the Wall Street Journal reports the plane is owned by a mining company run by the younger brother of Ghana’s president.
