It took just 30 minutes to shift 24-year long grounded aeroplane

Nagpur: While all failed to shift the aeroplane, long-parked for 24 years in the vicinity of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar International Airport, Nagpur, the new Airport Director Roshan Kamble, who recently took over the charge of his office, succeeded in shifting the aeroplane to the location of Nagpur Flying Club on Tuesday, Sep 29. The Airport authority personnel took a sigh of relief over this, for it was said be causing threat to the traffic on the runway.

Talking to media personnel present over there, Kamble said, “It took just half-an-hour to move the plane. Though its wheels were not in working order, so we replaced them with wheels of Boeing and the plane was pulled and shifted to the location of Nagpur Flying Club. I did it on priority as this work had been pending over a long period of time and was causing concern to all.”

Present at the time of shifting the plane were Senior Airport Director of MIHAN Avadhesh Prasad, Roshan Kamble, Suraj Shinde, Abid Ruhi and Dy Commandant CISF Gurjeet Singh among others.

It may be mentioned that the plane of Continental Aviation Private Limited belonged to US-based NRI Sam Verma who never bothered to take away the plane nor did he pay the parking charges. However, MIHAN took care of renewal of its licence by the Director General of Civil Aviation, and the plane remained lying near the runway, posing a threat to other aeroplanes while taking off or landing on the runway.
