All the passengers go out onto the runway, grab hold of the plane, push it
until it gets in the air, hop on, jump off when it hits the ground again.
Then they grab the plane again, push it back into the air, hop on, etcetera.

The terminal is very neat and clean, the attendants are all very attractive
and the pilots very capable. The fleet is immense. After your plane arrives
6 months late, you begin to wonder why it has not arrived yet. Your jet takes
off without a hitch,pushing above the clouds, and at 20,000 feet it crashes
The cashiers, flight attendants, and pilots all look the same, feel the same
and act the same. When asked questions about the flight they reply that you
don't want to know, don't need to know, and would you please return to your
seat and watch the movie.
The terminal is almost empty, with only a few prospective passengers milling
about. Airline personnel walk around, apologising profusely to customers in
hushed voices, pointing from time to time to the sleek, powerful jets outside
the terminal on the field. They tell each passenger how good the real flight

the flight systems on this immense,luxury aircraft. This plane has at least 10
engines and seats for over 1,000 passengers. All the passengers scramble aboard,
as do the necessary complement of 200 technicians. The pilot takes his place up
in the glass cockpit. He guns the engines, only to realise that the plane is too
big to get through the hangar doors!
Each passenger brings a piece of the airplane and a box of tools to the airport.
They gather on the tarmac, arguing constantly about what kind of plane they want
to build and how to put it together. Eventually, they build several different
aircraft, but give them all the same name. Some passengers actually reach their
destinations. All passengers believe they got there.
