The Economic Times - - Companies -

A crane car­ry­ing an un­used Air In­dia air­craft crashed near the Begum­pet Air­port early morn­ing on Sun­day. No ca­su­al­ties were re­ported. The old Air­bus A320 air­craft was be­ing taken to Air In­dia’s cadet train­ing fa­cil­ity at the Balana­gar. A crane mounted on a 16wheel­base trans­port car­rier was sup­posed to hold the plane up­wards (or in the po­si­tion in which it flies) and thus trans­port it. Af­ter go­ing a short dis­tance the crane col­lapsed un­der the weight of the air­craft, re­ports Anir­ban Chowd­hury. The plane crashed on to the wall of Hitech club near Tiru­mala Tiru­pati Dev­asthanam school at the old air­port road. The plane will now have to be dis­man­tled and re­moved from the area, sources said.
