CHARLOTTE, N.C. – When U.S. Airways barred a classical musician from bringing his violin on the plane, he did the first thing that came to mind.

He pulled out the instrument and began playing on the tarmac.

Zach De Pue of “Times for Three” played Bach on the tarmac in North Carolina as the crew got ready for takeoff.

He and Nick Kendall were on their way to play at the Artosphere Arts and Nature Festival in Fayetteville, Arkansas when they were kicked off the plane.

U.S. Airways later issued an apology, got them on another flight and wished them “good luck and good playing at the festival.”
