A crane carrying an Air India aircraft lost its balance and crashed near Begumpet airport in Telangana on Sunday morning, no casualties have been reported.

According to a top police official, the aircraft was empty and was being taken to a hangar for training purposes. The incident took place at 7 am in the morning when the crane lost its balance and crashed on the compound wall of Hitech club near Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam school at the old airport road in Bowenpally.

Newest Air India Flight Sim.
The procedure is simulated, but the crash is real!
:E

On a more serious note, it looks to me from the video that the crane did not lose balance, but the boom gave way and bent.
Thank God nobody got hurt.

The load looks to be well to the left (from viewing perspective) of where it should be, putting lateral load on the crane's boom leading to the inevitable. A snagged guide rope?

Someone tried to make huge economy on long truck hiring and plane separation by moving whole plane with crane alone. Result was quite predictable, isn't it?

Idiots. Even with the engines and wing surfaces removed, that airframe must weigh around 20T. Still, that's what you expect on that continent...

I doubt it is possible to truck a A320 on third world roads. Roads are very narrow with tight turns and electric, telecom and cable TV wires criss crossing everywhere. You can see some of the wires in the video.

There are news suggesting this happened at a turn, so most likely the wobble force snapped cable/buckled crane. I don't see any guide wires to control wobble.

In hindsight they should have removed as much weight as possible and use Mi-26 chopper to move it.

Are any of the original Indian A320s with the 4-wheel main gear still flying?

They will be able to practice heavy landing repair now!

With a tear in the floor and hole in the roof and all the jagged metal, it is a perfect plane for training.

To make this story more interesting, apparently there was a celebration with water cannon salute at the beginning of this journey.

Sorry to say, and with some experience of the continent, this is entirely unsurprising.

Yes, 7 or 8, including one in full Star Allance colours. Just flew one two weeks ago from BOM to DEL.

Actually, 'Newer' and 'Never' are homophones in many dialects of Indian English:

Indian English

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

...Standard Hindi and most other vernaculars (except Punjabi, Marathi, Assamese & Bengali) do not differentiate between /v/ (voiced labiodental fricative) and /w/ (voiced labiovelar approximant). Instead, many Indians use a frictionless labio-dental approximant [ʋ] for words with either sound, possibly in free variation with [v] and/or [w] depending upon region. Thus, wet and vet are often homophones.
