The series consists of 2 super-bendy performances of a male gymnast and a female gymnast, both from USA Gymnastics, performing on wooden replicas of business class seats. The male gymnast performs on the American Airlines seat and the female gets the Delta model. The replicas of the seats are very realistic, (though not the current cabin offering) and act as a supporting role for each of the athletes. The American seat acts as a pommel horse for the guys, while the Delta seat loosely approximates the balance beam.
The exhibit opened up to the public earlier this month and will run through April 22. If you are planning a trip to Indy soon, this is a show to see for the airline geek in all of us. Our recommendation is to merely watch the show and don't try it on your next flight. We won't guarantee the flight attendants will enjoy your performance, no matter your level of flexibility.
