On August 29, 2015, the Iranian news agency Tasnim, which is affiliated with Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), published a video clip of film and still photos taken by an IRGC naval plane during a reconnaissance mission to identify an American aircraft carrier in the Strait of Hormuz. The 46-second clip, complete with dramatic soundtrack, is filmed from two angles – from high above the aircraft carrier, and from alongside it. It clearly shows the American crew looking straight at the camera as it passes by. The report also states that the aircraft that carried out the mission was a Harbin Y-2.
