On May 19th, 2024, President Raisi [Cargo ID #1280], Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, Governor-General of East Azerbaijan Malek Rahmati, the Supreme Leader's Representative in East Azerbaijan Mohammad Ali Ale-Hashem, and Raisi's head of security departed for Tabriz by helicopter. Their aircraft was crewed by two military pilots holding the rank of colonel and a flight technician with the rank of major, and was part of a convoy of three helicopters.

At around 13:30 IRST (UTC+03:30), the helicopter crashed approximately 2 kilometers (1.2 mi) south west of the village of Uzi in the Dizmar Forest region. With the exception of its tail, the helicopter was completely destroyed in the impact. Search operations ended on May 20th, following the recovery of the bodies of those on board. Many of the bodies were found to be in a charred condition, but were still identifiable visually.

Mohammad Ali Ale-Hashem, the Friday Prayer Imam of Tabriz, was the only survivor of the crash itself. He lived for an hour after the crash made contact with the president's office. Ale-Hashem had been in contact twice and had described his own condition as "bad" but could hear ambulances nearby. He died before the rescue teams could reach him.
