On 17 March, the Boeing 747-281B of Fars Air Qeshm (EP-FAB) of Iran was damaged at Doha International Airport.

This happened after the cargo handling workers unloaded the aircraft incorrectly. They unloaded the cargo from the nose of the aircraft first. Consequently, the aircraft became tail heavy and tipped backward.
