Now that sounds like a game plan <img src="/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />.

Well, maybe not ?IRREFUTABLE? but certainly something a little more substantial than the tedious internet musings of some bitter PHRASECENSOREDPOSTERSHOULDKNOWBETTER. hack who is upset over Kerry losing the election. I mean, it?s a bit silly to compare Huey Long, the arch-populist, with G.W Bush, however obliquely. On the political spectrum Long fell right between FDR and Trotsky. Oh well, I imagine it got him an ?A? on his 9th grade writing assignment. <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Goatrider, thanks for the link though. That website did provide this gem. Very useful survival info indeed:

I have no idea whether this story is true or not, but it wouldn't surprise me <img src="/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

On a business trip, my father approached a security checkpoint at the airport. The National Guard shift was rotating, and a guard, in full uniform, was in line in front of him. As with everybody else, the soldier was ordered to go through the metal detector. Before doing so, he handed his M-16 rifle to security personnel along with other items such as handcuffs and a flashlight.
Still, the alarm sounded when he walked through. Further inspection revealed a little Swiss army knife inside one of his pockets.

"Sorry, Sir, but this item is prohibited," security said to the soldier. Taking the knife away, the airport worker handed him back the M-16.

Sorry to jump in so late here.

I've been to California 30 times this year, I'm a member of most of the Frequent Flyer "Special" level programs, I know the crews on some flights by name. I fly quite a bit. I routinely carry EMT shears (clip them to the OUTSIDE of you bags, will speed things up). I also have hemostats they go through fine.

FYI: There's ample rescue tools on board all planes - including axes and knives, you just have to know whewre they are. I do and I'm not telling.

Once again, my advice to anyone who wants their knives, guns, or any other "special" items to be where you're going when you get there - Fedex your stuff to your destination. It's worth the money.
There's only 2 types of baggage - Carry On and Lost.

I do and I'm not telling.

Indeed the danger would be too high with all these reckless people who visit this forum.

The risk between knowing the place of survival tools in case of a crash-land and now taking the opportunity to hijack a plane because they know where the tools are placed is just too high.
