Freddie Mercury. The second anyone says that name, you almost immediately think of his legendary vocals. You think of his impact to rock and roll. Mercury was a true trail blazer in the music industry. What you might not know about him, he was once a baggage handler at an airport. He worked at Heathrow Airport in Longford, England and it was his birthday on the 5th. The current baggage handlers decided to honor him this week and gave some airport goers a treat. They dress as Mercury and performed, "I Want to Break Free," around the airport. It's pretty awesome, take a look.
Today, members of our baggage team along with British Airways colleagues performed a tribute at T5 Arrivals to one-time Heathrow baggage handler Freddie Mercury, in support of @The_MPT! #ForeverFreddie #BohemianRhapsody pic.twitter.com/73l9aZM7ve— Heathrow Airport (@HeathrowAirport) September 5, 2018
This gets me excited for the upcoming movie, "Bohemian Rhapsody" this fall. Can't wait to see his story played out on film.
