Abandoned plane disrupts traffic in Mumbai suburb

An abandoned Boeing 737 in a busy suburb of Mumbai has been blocking traffic for the last five days with no effort by authorities to remove the plane.

Chembur (Mumbai), May 4 : An abandoned Boeing 737 in a busy suburb of Mumbai has been blocking traffic for the last five days with no effort by authorities to remove the plane.

The plane has become the centre of attraction in Chembur with people flocking from all over the city to take a closer look.However, for Ramji Thapar who runs a restaurant in the area, the plane is causing a nuisance, as it is parked right in front of his shop.

"When we saw the plane for the first time, there was no one in the truck carrying the plane. It has been five days now. It has been here since Sunday. It is causing traffic jams in the area. People climb upon it and crowd around it," said Thapar.

His business is suffering because customers fail to see his restaurant, now hidden behind the plane.

On the other side, commuters using the road are facing traffic jams everyday.

"Traffic has been getting clogged in the area and commuting through has become difficult. Onlookers are not leaving despite police action. No one is attending to the traffic here. Only the beat constables are coming. None of the senior officers have come," said Ganesh Patil, a commuter.

Meanwhile, for children and youngsters, the plane has become a major attraction.

"It feels great to see an airplane from such close quarters for the first time," said Rajshree, a schoolgirl.

The decommissioned aircraft, with its engine, wings and tail removed, was being taken to New Delhi late on Saturday night. But the driver, after taking a wrong turn, could not maneuver the plane around and fled the scene.

According to various reports, it was supposed to be used at a flight-training academy in New Delhi.

Five days on, it is still not clear who is responsible for clearing the aircraft and sending it off to New Delhi.
