Bengaluru Boeing aircraft of PM flying at low altitude puzzles residents

For the past two days, residents of Koramangala in Bengaluru have been dealing with the constant buzzing noise of a plane circling above the neighbourhood. Several X users pointed out that a Boeing aircraft was passing close to the ground and did around six circles over the HAL (Hindustan Aeronautics Limited) Airport.

Flightradar24, which tracks commercial flights, said the aircraft was a Boeing 777-337 (ER), with registration number K7067, which is used to fly VVIPs like the President, Vice President and Prime Minister.

Flight data showed the aircraft departed from Delhi, and made six circles around the HAL airport. The data further revealed that the aircraft left Delhi at 5.32 pm on April 3 and returned at 10.54 pm from Bengaluru.

“A really low flying plane circling Bangalore near Koramangala, Indiranagar area. Comes really close to the ground then takes off again without touching,” one of the residents posted on X.

Mohan Krishnan, a retired scientist who worked at the National Informatics Centre, said since the model code of conduct was in force due to the Lok Sabha polls, the aircraft might be flying to remain in good condition or training pilots.

Some users complained of the constant noise of the aircraft. “I see this every night. Flying at low altitudes, blaring,” one user said. Another commented, “This one is frustrating, seeing it daily.”

A resident said he noticed the aircraft multiple times over the past two weeks. An alumnus of the National Defence Academy said the HAL Airport, a defence airport, was also used for training pilots for commercial airlines as well.
