    That will make it slightly less inconvenient, but is just a patch for an airport that was not designed to be used by people or airplanes.

What am I missing?

    I always wonder why the UFOs seem to pick up the trailer folks in the countryside and never the folks that WANT to meet the aliens. Hmmm...

    Art,

    C'mon it's obvious. Your great looks and charming personality so dazzles the TSA ladies that they wave you right through!

    Like gr82bart I too have done extensive international travel with my 4x5 gear and Blad with no problems. No security hassles, no fogged film nothing.

    I know that some TSA people act like Barney Fife, and the inconsistency of some airports refusing to hand check film bothers me, but you know what?The TSA people can look inside the brim of my hat, swab down my shoes, and play with my cable release all they want, and I'm going to thank them for it because some asshole is less likely to end my life at 30,000 feet.

    Tom I agree unreservedly and for the same reasons as you. I flew through there once many years ago and have not been near the place since.

    I flew home from Phoenix with quite large backpack full of MF camera, equipment, cable release, lots of 120 film and fully expected to be stopped to have everything looked through but no, just through the x-ray and nothing. Maybe the more you have the easier it is to recognise. Maybe they were looking for liquids!

    Could be a problem for the wet plate collodion guys, then.

    The mission of the TSA never bothered me at all. I do think that if you set regulations (such as hand checking film) you should follow them.
