It is rare to see people pushing an airplane but it happened in Nepal.
A viral video on social media shows an unusual scene where a group of people are pushing an airplane off a runway.
Passengers at an airport in Nepal were filmed pushing the Tara Air plane on Wednesday. According to Nepal News, the plane’s rear tyre burst while landing at Bajura Airport in Kolti, because of which it was unable to move off the runway.
There was another plane flying overhead which was unable to land because the taxiway was blocked by the parked aircraft.
When passengers at the airport noticed this challenge, they joined security personnel in pushing the aircraft off the runway.
The video shows a group of about 20 people working together to move the airplane off the runway. “Only in Nepal,” one Twitter user wrote while sharing the video on the microblogging platform, where it has racked up thousands of views and reactions.
The other plane was able to land safely after the Tara Air plane was successfully moved out of the way. The plane’s punctured tyre was also replaced shortly afterwards.
Recently, another aircraft had made the news for strange reasons. Footage of an Air India plane stuck underneath a foot overbridge near Delhi airport had gone massively viral on social media.
