is there a video game involved? video screen?

"climb aboard" - go up steps? ladder? or simply 'step into' something?

is it fun? is it medicinal? is it dark inside? is it the size of a normal room? a warehouse? a tight confined space?

the original post is worded that this set up as a trip -- do the people think they're going to a different locale?

Are the people boarding the plane simply to tour it? Is the plane of historical significance? Is it famous for being in a TV show or movie? Do they have their photos taken while aboard the plane? Is there anyone of relevance on the plane when they board it?

The fee they pay to board...is it more than $10? more than $100? more than $1000?

Is it more likely to be children than adults that board this? more likely to be adults than children? any ages? would a child of 5 find any interest in experiencing this?

are there windows in the plane?

would a deaf person have the same experience as a able-hearing person would?

would a blind person have the same experience as a able-seeing person would?

do people buckleup when the board the plane? do they sit down while on the plane?

is any sort of training involved?

The name "Bah" is rather unique; is there a significance to using this name other than something more generic, like Bob? Is "Bah" a hint of something?

when this puzzle is complete, might anyone reading this thread be able to make a few phone calls and experince this for themselves?

is it common for a person to experience this more than once?

Trying a different approach...

Would someone who is afraid to fly go there?

Does Bah simply have a plane set up so that people can go there before taking a real flight just to know what to expect? to see if they can fit in the seats??

********** SPOILER ************

Bahadur Chand Gupta bought an old Airbus 300 and now offers weekly sessions in Delhi in which any of the 1 billion Indians who have never flown before can sit on a genuine (though disabled) airliner, listen to pilot announcements ("We are about to begin our descent into Delhi"), and be served by flight attendants. Said one customer (who paid the equivalent of about $4), "I see planes passing all day long over my roof. I had to try out the experience." [The Times (London), 9-30-07]

Well done Lporter. Worked hard for that one!

Geez, these puzzles are getting solved before I can get any q's in!

This is a good puzzle. There's a guy in the USA who is doing something similar, he started with the mostly empty hulk of an old passenger plane and is scouring the world to get replacement parts in hopes of one day rebuilding it and possibly flying it. He has allowed TV crews to tour it as well as aviation enthusiasts, but it's now basically a gutted fuselage with wings attached (maybe I just spoiled a puzzle for someone else).
