According to Flightradar24, a Boeing 777-337 (ER) with registration number K7067, typically used for transporting VVIPs such as the Prime Minister, President, and Vice President, was identified as the aircraft in question. Flight data indicated that it took off from Delhi and circled the HAL airport six times before returning to Delhi at 10:54 pm on April 3.

Residents took to social media to express their concerns about the unusual activity. Mohan Krishnan, a retired scientist from the National Informatics Centre, suggested that since the model code of conduct was in effect due to the Lok Sabha elections, the aircraft might be engaged in maintenance flights or pilot training.
