Violinists fight 'Bach' after being banned from flight

Two musicians say they were kept from boarding a U.S. Airways flight in Charlotte after trying to bring their violins on board.

So they took matters into their own hands with a unique protest -- Zach De Pue of "Time for Three" took out his violin, right on the tarmac, and started playing.

His fellow musician Nick Kendall posted the video on YouTube.

At one point, you can see the pilot completely ignoring the violist.

U.S. Airways eventually got them re-booked and tells ABC News it apologizes for the inconvenience.
