Amsterdam Orchestra Plays In Boeing 747

The Amsterdam Sinfonietta chamber orchestra gave a spontaneous concert in a delayed KLM Boeing 747 at Shanghai Airport. The airplane had already been waiting an hour and a half for permission to take off.

'We might as well play then,' the musicians said standing in the aisles, performing the last movement of Mozart's Symphony no 29.
