Iraqi Air Force crash was a Cessna AC-208B and not a Cessna 172

The crash of the Cessna aircraft on Saturday 31 October 2020 has now been confirmed as a Cessna AC-208B Combat Caravan.

Although the previous information reported about a "Cessna 172 Caravan", at that time we received "confirmation" on the type as a Cessna 172S. This has now proven wrong.

The Combat Caravan was also operated by the 202nd Training Squadron, part of the Iraqi Air Force College at Tikrit Al-Sahra. No further details were reported on the cause of the accident.
