Today, possibly the first time ever, a theater play was partly performed on an Aircraft 10000 feet in the air onboard a Norwegian Boeing 737-800. The Henrik Ibsen play " Peer Gynt " started at OSL Gardermoen airport, before it continued onboard the Aircraft at 10 000 feet on it's way to BGO where the pay ended at the airport there.
