No one seems to have an explanation for why a plane belonging to the Bank of Utah has been spotted in the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, Iran.
The US has strict sanctions on Iran which includes prohibitions on most American aircraft entering the country – though both the Treasury Department and FAA are not commenting one way or the other on the plane. Nor is the government of Iran.
President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact.
Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran.
