Eight aboard the flight were passengers and three were crew members. It belonged to Basaran Holding.

The flight took off from Sharjah International Airport on Sunday and one hour later rapidly gained altitude before dropping drastically according to Flight Radar 24.

Iran's state-run IRNA news agency says that authorities have recovered the "black box" from a Turkish private jet that crashed in Iran while traveling from the United Arab Emirates to Istanbul, killing all 11 people on board.

Heavy rains and wind in the mountain range since the crash made it impossible for helicopters to land and remove bodies from the mountainside.

According to Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari Red Crescent Organization, the families of the Turkish victims have arrived in Shahr-e-Kord, the capital city of the province, as the investigations into the causes of the incident have begun.

Ms Basaran had been due to get married next month, and had whisked away her seven friends to Dubai to celebrate. Several of the women, like Mina, had successful careers in the fashion industry.

According to reports, the guests have been identified as Zeynep Coşkun, Ayşe And, Burcu Urfalı, Aslı İzmirli, Liana Hananel, Jasmin Baruh and Sinem Akay.

Rezaee Far, the chief of Accidents Bureau of the OVA, said that based on the preliminary reports, the crashed plane type was Bombardier CL604.




Mr Basaran had named one of his residential developments after her, and she shared some pictures from Mina Towers on her Instagram before she died.

Among the last photographs posted by Başaran on Instagram was an image of the crashed plane posted four days ago.

Mina and her seven bridesmaids had spent the weekend in Dubai before making their way home on Sunday afternoon.

Basaran is a former deputy chairman of Trabzonspor football club, which plays in Turkey's top football league. He has business interests in the energy, finance, construction, food and tourism sectors, among others.

Witnesses in a village near the crash claim they saw flames coming from the plane's engine before it went down, according to Iranian news agency Fars.

Tasnim news agency quoted an ICAO official as saying: "The plane is on fire".

The local people of the region have found 8 bodies out of 11 people on board the plane in the Durk Anari Kyyar region. They will be carried down from the mountain when sun comes up.
