Precious Cargo

A friend on Facebook linked to a CNN story about Zachary De Pue, Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra Concertmaster, who refused to check his 1757 Gagliano violin into a US Airways plane’s cargo hold for a quick jump to Fayetteville.  What did De Pue do?  Why, a tarmac recital, of course:

Turns out De Pue is right on the rules, and violins can indeed travel in the cabin.  He pointed out the relevant FAA regulation to an attendant on a subsequent flight, who allowed him to board without incident.

What did we do before viral videos?

Thanks for reading.
