Actually it is a plane on a float in a parade (probably the 26th of january Republic Day Parade). It is in Delhi about 180 kilometers NNW of Agra where the Taj Mahal is.
The parade originates just by the Lok Sabha, goes south and makes a left turn at the Raj Path. It then goes past the India Gate and continues almost all the way to the National Stadium. That makes the entire parade almost 3 kilometers long.
