Stranded airline passengers treated to a concert by United Express Pilot Billy Hock

As wicked winter weather moves over the Midwest this week, naturally a slew of airline passengers have found themselves faced with interminable delays at the airport. At Kansas City International Airport, all flights were canceled for Thursday night and in St. Louis, more than 320 flights at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport were canceled, the Associated Press reported.
But, according to KSDK in St. Louis, Billy Hock, a captain for United Express, took it into his own hands (or fingers?) to help passengers stuck at Lambert Airport pass the time by giving an impromptu piano concert Thursday. By the way, Captain Hock composes all of his music, and while passengers were tired he did bring smiles to their faces. He played in terminal one for about three hours as a mixture of snow and sleet covered the runway.Check it out in the video above.
