A Very Short Wingspan

Bet you can't figure out how this happened:

two ideas leap to mind.

1. - you are in some type of cabin trainer / mockup.
2. - you were standing beside a door that was no longer attached to the airframe.

third option:

you are in an airframe partially pulled into the side of a hanger to keep the mechanics dry while changing wiper blades.

You don't actually work for an airline, you're just some crazy person who builds retaining walls for a living and has built a full size model plane in their backyard.

It's the side of a jetway. One of those trainee drivers must be delivering fresh gremlins to the engines.

A VERY skilled pusher thingy driver person? Or the galley was empty and the pilot took everybody to McDonalds.

The caterer showed up... surprisingly with fresh and edible food!

It's a high wing airplane, pulled up close to a short building, like maybe an outhouse, so the pilot doesn't have to walk far in the snow to get to it. The wing goes over top.

You're inside one of the rare CRJ-200CV (Carrier Variant) aircraft, and the wings have folded allowing it to be back-in-parked in one of those evil parking spots that don't give the passenger any room to get out.

Either that or you've just recreated the scene from "Air America" where the pilot shears both wings off a C-123 and then slides it into an old quonset hut.

Now we're getting some cool answers! I'd like to say I'm flying in the dorky Transformer who got stuck turning into an RJ, but whoever dph wins... it's a cabin trainer. It's just the interior of the cabin, a little like that Twilight Zone where they get stuck in the dollhouse for giants where all the drawers are fake. The flight deck is spooky because there's nothing in it.
Pyry: Catering delivers gremlins now. They come in crates through the galley door.
Scoon: SHHHH! This blog relies on COMPLETE CREDIBILITY!
Guy: Valiant? They actually have a collapsible 200? I WANT one.
