Prior to Freddie Mercury's music breakthrough with Queen, he was a baggage handler at London's Heathrow Airport.

Mercury would have been 72 years old last week on 5th Sept and to celebrate his birthday, British Airways' baggage crew paid tribute to the legendary singer with a short video.

In the video, the crew line-danced and lip-synced to Queen's "I Want to Break Free" while wearing costumes of Mercury's iconic look - faux moustache, neon yellow hi vis military-styled jacket and white trousers. They also used rolling luggage and sticks as props.
