India's national carrier doesn't have the most stalwart of reputations, so it wouldn't surprise someone to hear about yet another Air India plane malfunctioning. But on Sunday, an old aircraft from the carrier crashed to the ground through no fault of its own. A crane that was carrying the old plane, near Hyderabad's Begumpet Airport, lost balance and collapsed. No casualties have been reported in the incident.

"An old hull stationed at Old Begumpet airport was being moved from Air India hangar for training purpose," the national carrier said in a statement. It was around 7 am when the crane moving the plane collapsed, with the plane crashing on the wall of the Hitech club near the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam school, the Deccan Chronicle reported.

Fortunately no one was in the plane or under the airplane as it was being moved, thereby averting a potentially major incident when the aircraft crashed. "Hull was successfully taken out of airport but at 1 particular moment crane gave away and hull became unstable landing on the ground. Though the hull landed on the ground it can be used for training purpose as planned initially," Air India said.
