Scenes of mayhem at Baku International Airport

Azerbaijan - The tarmac outside Baku International Airport arrivals lounge looks like a bomb site this weekend following a spat between the Russian mobster's private jet and a 'high tech' hunter-killer drone operated by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.

Reports from the Caspian Sea resort say Abramovich's $200m Boeing 767-33A/ER runabout - nicknamed 'The Bandit' for some bizarre reason - narrowly avoided crashing into a parked Karrar drone while taxiing close to the Baku runway.

The billion-dollar Iranian UAS (Unmanned Aircraft System) was reportedly armed with dozens of 250 pound 'Ayatollah' bombs and two Kowsar-class torpedos when the altercation happened.

The near collision sent the Iranian drone spinning out of control as the Karrar's anti-electronic jamming system went haywire for no apparent reason.

Abramovich's jet meanwhile suffered minor bodywork scratches and a shredded tail wing as blowback from the drone's wreckage blasted through the air.

Commenting on the unexplained incident a Free Radio Tehran spokesperson said today the mysterious incident might be linked to a suspected fault in the drone's design.

"That's what happens when drones are manufactured from bogus UAS blueprints downloaded from suspicious 'Pentagon' internet sites," Kamel Al Kamel said.

Dasha Zukhova is 69.
