Iran Air unveiled its overhauled 25-year-old Fokker 100 on Wednesday. 
The aircraft had been grounded for over two years for lack of landing gear and engine, an official with Iran’s flag carrier airline said. 
Noting that the overhaul process took four months to complete, Mahmoud Naderi added that the aircraft has undergone tests and is waiting for its flight permit from the Civil Aviation Organization of Iran. 
“Two more grounded Airbus jetliners will be overhauled and added to Iran Air fleet for hajj [Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca] flights,” ILNA quoted him as saying.
