The helicopter of Iranian President Ayatollah Ibrahim Raisi crashed in the mountains of Julfa region of East Azerbaijan, as a result of which the Iranian President and his other comrades on board the helicopter were martyred.

According to foreign media reports, the Turkish-made drone was the first to detect the crashed helicopter of the Iranian president, which it reported by making a crescent and star sign.

According to foreign media reports, the helicopter of the Iranian president crashed in the Julfa mountains a few minutes after take-off due to fog and severe weather conditions. A search for the crashed helicopter was started with the cooperation of Turkey, Iraq and Azerbaijan.

According to media reports, a Turkish drone named Bayraktar Akinci allegedly found the helicopter wreckage in northern Iran near the border with Azerbaijan shortly after the crash.

The Akenji 01 drone was circling the crash site on the morning of May 19 when it detected the Iranian president’s helicopter using heat from the wreckage.

According to foreign media reports, open-source flight tracking websites traced the drone’s path and found that the drone was first seen near the Iranian territory of Macau and was last seen near the Turkish Lake Van.

The Turkish-made drone made the crescent and star sign, which is the symbol of the Turkish flag, when it spotted the crashed helicopter.

According to foreign media reports, a total of 2.8 million people follow various flight paths on Flight Radar 24.

As soon as the Iranian president’s helicopter was reported missing, Akenji Drones launched a search for it, followed by more than 2 million people online.

Unmanned Akenji drone

The company that manufactures unmanned Akenji drones claims that the drone is capable of performing the operations of a fighter jet, is a UAV, meaning it can be flown without a pilot and can perform air-to-air and air-to-ground operations. But can also be used for combat operations.

According to the company, the said drone is capable of flying for 24 hours while it can fly up to 40,000 feet.

The company says that the drone’s internal sensor fusion navigation system eliminates the need for GPS.
