Iranian aircraft deal

"In February 2008, the US State Department contacted its London Embassy requesting “immediate action” over three Jumbo Jets it believed were bound for Iranian-owned Mahan Air, which is banned from operating within the EC. The Boeing 747-400 aircraft, owned by a US subsidiary of the Balli Group, were undergoing maintenance in South Korea, but the US had “strong reason to believe” they were bound for Mahan Air."[1]
