The plane became trapped at Korisepadu late on Saturday while being transported from Kochi to Hyderabad on a vehicle's trailer. Officials had stopped the Addanki to Hyderabad service route due to maintenance projects at Medarametla. Vehicles were detoured through the Korisapadu underpass on their way to Hyderabad.

Following a tip, Medarmetla police arrived at the scene and assisted in removing the aircraft from the underpass. After a few hours, the truck driver and the jet were both safely retrieved from the underpass. Reports suggest that the truck driver was not sure if the plane could pass through the underpass, so he stopped the truck to prevent any damage to the plane or vehicle.

The plane in the incident is a VT-ESB, Airbus 320-200 aircraft, as per Simpleflying. The plane was previously owned by Air India. However, the plane has been retired from the airlines fleet for being more than 25 years old and was sold to the owner of Pista House to be used as a restaurant.

Though unusual, the incident is not a first of its kind. There have been previous such incidents in the past. In 2021, a video of a scrapped Air India plane stuck under a foot overbridge went viral. The incident went viral because of multiple reasons, including the missing wings of the plane wedged between the road and bridge. Later it was discovered that the plane was deregistered, scrapped, and sold off and was being transported to a new location.
