A Boeing 707 cargo plane with nine people on board crashed on Monday near Iran's Fath airport, west of the capital, Tehran, the semi-official Fars news agency reported, adding that there was no immediate information on casualties.

The Fars news agency, considered close to the military, said there were 16 people onboard and that only the flight engineer had survived.

Fire immediately engulfed the aircraft after it skidded off a runway and crashed into a wall separating the Fath Airport from a residential neighbourhood.

"A (Boeing) cargo 707 place carrying meat took off from Bishkek in Kyrgyzstan and had an emergency landing at Fath airport this morning", the army said in a statement on its website.

Iran's air force said in a statement that the fate of the crew, including their possible "martyrdom", was under investigation.

A spokesman for Iran's civil aviation said the plane belonged to Kyrgyzstan, while Kyrgyzstan's Manas airport said it was operated by Iran's Payam Air.

Iranians often use the word "martyrdom" for those who die in war or national service, suggesting the aircraft may have belong to the air force.

The plane's engines and wheels are spread across the crash site and images from inside the plane's hull show it is completely charred.

It was later confirmed it belonged to Iran's air force.
