That’s really a nice tribute and interesting to see it recreated.

The music, (Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No.1) sounds like it’s been played by a Jazz/Piano Bar/Nightclub band that needs practice and the pianist is hitting incorrect notes or he’s improvising… badly. The video would have been more impressive had a ‘real’ rendition of Tchaikovsky’s concerto been used. Regardless though, it was enjoyable to view.

There seem to have been a number of these things done…

BBC News apparently contacted JustFlight to do a piece for them as well. I couldn’t post it yesterday, as it wasn’t available to view for anyone outside the UK at the time, but it is apparently now visible at this URL:

What an odd choice of music!
Aside from that, anything that salutes the efforts of the crew has to be commendable.
Similar circumstances to BA038 last year.
