Remember that scene from ‘Rang De Basanti’ where they were seen rejoicing under an airplane flying over their heads? Well, ever wanted to live that moment? Don’t know about you, but these nine models sure got a taste of how it feels.
In a video uploaded by ANI, we can see a private jet (Cessna Grand Caravan C208B Aircraft) taking off from a highway, right over their heads, while they stood there and a few of them cheered.

Deeming it bizarre and a total violation of the aviation rules, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has started an enquiry into the matter and the incident is being reviewed.
While the location of the highway is not yet known, we can see that the jet belongs to Supreme Airlines, which operates mainly in the state of Rajasthan and belongs to a Mumbai based company. Presently, it is intra-state operations as per their website. So, we are guessing it is a highway somewhere in Rajasthan.
Plus, to us, it looks like a scene from a reality show as, towards the ends of the clip, a girl’s voice over seems like anecdotes we have often seen on TV reality shows. She exclaimed,
“We landed at a private airstrip where there was a private plane that was waiting for us.”
Once, the DGCA investigation is in place more details would come to light. But this was a major violation of aviation rules.
