Staycation: The $1 Flight to Nowhere


A RETIRED aircraft engineer is offering impoverished Indians the chance to fulfil their dreams of air travel for only $1. The twist is that aircraft never leaves the ground - earning it the nickname 'the flight to nowhere'. Bahadur Chand Gupta, 58, from Haryana in northern India, purchased a decommissioned Airbus 300 in 2003 for £60,000. Parked on the outskirts of New Delhi, on the periphery of the capital's International airport, the plane is mostly visited by children and the region's underprivileged citizens.
