A major accident was miraculously averted on the Old Airport Road in Begumpet on Sunday.
According to information received, an A-320 aircraft of Air India, which was displayed in the recent Air Show, fell on the road after hitting a railing while it was being shifted to a training centre with the help of a crane.
As the aircraft had remained idle after the Air Show, the officials concerned decided to shift it to a training centre, and deployed a huge crane in the early morning for the purpose. However, as the aircraft was too heavy to be moved easily, the workers on the job lost control, resulting in the aircraft falling on the road after hitting a railing.
The airport authorities said nobody was injured in the accident.
