Blue Monday Instructions

Happy Blue Monday!  Have you ever wondered how bands get their instruments on airplanes and to their destination safely? 

Here’s how it’s done….


I would not want to be the baggage handler on this flight!

For more Blue Monday posts, head on over to Sally’s!

  1. That’s one serious piece of band equiptment! So glad the case was blue…

  2. LOL Lana..I thought the one said RIP (rest in peace)…. I guess my eyes are tired tonight….

    Happy Blue Monday


  3. I can just imagine how you pulled out your camera when you saw this! I wonder if they have to pay extra?

  4. Now, that’s something I’ve never seen, and very cool, too.

    Happy Blue Monday!


    Sheila 🙂

  5. Holy Cow! Look at the size of that instrument case!
    Happy Blue Monday!

  6. They look real heavy!I wonder how much they pay for overweight!…Christine

  7. lol…looks like some kind of space equitment, no I wouldn’t want to be the baggage checker either.

  8. Loved this one! ☺

  9. I am with you I would not want to be loading an airplane when that big ole instrument was there.
    Happy Blue Monday!

  10. oh my…that equipment is really huge…

  11. All I can say is, wow!

  12. I think a band member will fit in one of those. why not, to save air fare as long as their are holes to let one breathe 🙂 not!

  13. Wow! I’ve never even thought of how a band transports its instruments. Happy Blue Monday!

  14. Blue does the job again! Thanks for sharing. Happy Blue Monday.

  15. Hmmm, not something I had thought about before. It must be nerve wracking for musicians worrying about how their instruments are being handled.

  16. Oh my gosh! Those are huge and so blue!

  17. WOW! Now that is interesting! I have a friend that is a professional musician; she has always done the tour bus thing. Can’t imagine that being ‘tossed’ around by the baggage folks!

  18. Hi!
    That’s one big instrument case! Have a great day!!


  19. I think I would choose the flute to play vs the bass!! Yep, great blue case 🙂

  20. Wow…that’s a big one alright. Happy Blue Monday!

  21. Glad I’m not dragging that to school…but somebody is.
    Love Claudie

  22. Wow I’d hate to have to carry that around all the time lol at least it’s a pretty color 🙂

  23. I wonder how many oops have happened this way. We always had to load our snow skis and we always worried about their safe arrival. They always arrived safe and sound. We just need faith I guess.


  24. Oh, I bet those baggage handlers DO just hate to see a band coming! Neat picture!
