The Aseman Airlines ATR-72, a twin-engine turboprop used for short-distance regional flying, went down on Sunday in foggy weather.

In the photos taken by the IRGC helicopters, the logo of the crashed plane was clearly visible on the broken piece, Sharif said.

Authorities hoped searchers would recover the aircraft's "black boxes" later on Tuesday. That equipment, typically painted in a bright color to allow searchers to easily find it, records cockpit conversations and radio transmissions, as well as other data from a flight.
