Scrapped Air India plane remains stuck under pedestrian bridge near Delhi airport, video goes viral
When it comes to planes, people may think they are flying high in the sky or parked in a hangar inside the airport. However, in a video that went viral, a plane was seen on a highway, stuck under a bridge, leaving passers-by and internet users amused.
In a video that got everyone talking online, an Air India carrier without its wings was seen stranded under a pedestrian bridge, as cars and buses passed by. The unusual sight of the huge stationary plane was filmed near Delhi airport on the Delhi-Gurugram highway in the middle of the night.
The video showed the nose of the plane and half of its body had gone through, however, the plane got stuck near the wing area below the deck.

As the video began to circulate widely, it left many people confused as to how it got there. Soon, the national airline clarified that the plane had been written off and scrapped. The incident occurred during the transport of the scrapped aircraft, which was sold.
“Air India has no connection with the aircraft under any circumstances,” the airline said in a statement.
However, even though the airline said it had nothing to do with the plane, that didn’t stop the jokes on social media.
Reduce the air in the tires a little.

The funny thing is that the guy who bought the plane is trucking it and I’m sure if he buys trucks he will be transporting them by plane.

However, this is not an isolated incident. Earlier in 2019, a similar incident occurred in West Bengal when another old Air India plane got stuck under a bridge while being transported in a truck.
