It’s understood a third person who died in the crash was in his car at the time, reports Iran’s Mehr News Agency.

According to local army official Reza Yousefi, the plan was being used for training and crashed due to a technical issue.

He told Al Jazeera: “These two pilots laid down their lives so the plane wouldn’t hit residential areas

“They could have ejected but they stayed and managed to veer it towards a non-residential area.”

The school was closed at the time of the crash just before 9am local time, army spokesman Shahin Taqi-Khani said.

He said technical failure appeared to be the cause of the incident, but that an investigation was underway.

The pilot and a trainee pilot were killed, as well as a civilian passing by in a car, he added.
