    This is very true. After a month-long trip by train, a large amount of my film ended up in my companion's backpack. She needed to catch a flight so she told me she would send the film to me. She sent it in June. I got my film in September, after the post office declared it lost. When it arrive there were dead bees inside the envelope. Lord knows where it went before it got to me.

    I've never traveled by plane with sheet film but I've had no problems with slow roll films going throw the carry inspection x-ray machines.

    Carry a changing bag in the event they want to open the film box so they can feel the contents even after x-ray.
