Re: Flying with a guitar... or not

Well, back in the USA finally, and the laptop to be the nerve center of the rack unit is gotten.

The trip was not without incident! I had to put the Strat through special handling because the ramps on Virgin Atlantic couldn't handle the length. When I got to Orlando, went to special handling to pick up Cthulhu, and the poor fella had taken a header out of the cargo bay, 30 feet or more onto the tarmac! Case shattered on the corner, dire fears as to the guitar's state. He's okay! Went to a guitar repair specialist in Jacksonville, and there was nothing wrong. Virgin Atlantic's buying me a new case. Grrr. Scary for a day or so though.

one time I put a note inside my pedalboard case that said "there is no contraband in here, thank you"
I got a note back that said "that's what you think !!!"

Lol! But isn't it quite common to use "carrier agents" that doesn't
know they are used as a carrier? Someone hiding something inside an
innocent person's luggage to have it transported with minimal risk
taking (for the criminal).
