Flying Pianos!

For all you piano lovers out there this post isn't going to be a pleasant one. I apologise for what you are about to witness. Sepia Saturday's prompt does show a piano after all.

Back in 1972 some ingenious and some may say very bored Massachusetts Institute of Technology students thought of disposing of their residence hall's very broken piano in an unusual manner. They loaded it into the elevator, sent it to the top, and shoved it very ceremoniously off the roof. 

As of this writing the lives of  forty-one pianos have come to a violent end, all in the name of science during the MIT Annual Piano Drop. Now this is fun research!!

To find many more piano posts tickle the ivories here for Sepia Saturday.
