A prototype aeroplane that was being transported to a museum was seen stuck under a toll gate in Indonesia. The aircraft was reportedly still in the process of moving during the incident and was on its way to be displayed in the Muzium Pusat Angkatan Udara Indonesia located in Yogyakarta, Jawa Tengah.
The authorities also mentioned that the aircraft was travelling from Jawa Barat. The rare plane is a Turboprop Gatotkaca N250, the first Indonesian-made aeroplane that was constructed in 1995.
According to reports, the incident happened when the truck driver that was transporting the aeroplane miscalculated the height of the aircraft, as reported by Astro Awani.
The manager of operations at Tol PT Trans Marga, Fauzi Abdurrahman, said that his staff assisted the truck driver to reverse his vehicle so that the aircraft was not damaged. They also guided the truck to a bigger toll gate so that the aircraft was able to pass through.
The process of moving the aircraft to the bigger toll gate took more than 3 hours. After clearing the toll gate the aircraft safely arrived at the museum.
The Gatotkaca N250 is the first plane made in Indonesia and the pride of the country. It was the first aircraft developed through the main development strategy launched by BJ Habibie, the former president of Indonesia.
