- Video of an Indian plane going down under an airlift goes viral.
- The aircraft sank under the bridge during transport.
- The traffic was not affected by the presence of the aircraft, the wings of the aircraft having apparently been removed.
Video of an Indian plane sunk under a pedestrian bridge has gone viral on social media, BBC reported Tuesday.
The publication said it was a scrapped plane that was allegedly sold and pushed under a bridge in Delhi while in transit.
The video, tweeted by an Indian journalist, showed that the traffic was unaffected by the plane’s presence on the route as the plane’s wings had apparently been removed.
According to BBC, the reporter also released a statement from Air India claiming that the airline was “no longer connected to the plane.”
“It’s a [deregistered] scrapped Air India plane that was sold. This was carried last night by the party [new owners]. Air India has no connection with the aircraft under any circumstances, “the publication quoted Air India.
The publication said citing the initial report on the plane stranded on the “Delhi-Gurugram highway outside Delhi airport” by India time that “the aircraft certainly does not belong to the Delhi airport fleet” and that “the driver may have made a mistake while transporting it”.
The video drew thousands of viewers on Twitter and YouTube and many of them asked the main reason for the event.
