    Re: Air travel with a sextant

    I don't think you can predict what airport security is going to do next!
    I used to travel with a small test hammer in my luggage - on passing my
    bag through X-ray, or whatever, they always used to say, "have a good day
    Father", thinking it was a crucifix. One day I was asked to open the bag
    - they took the hammer from me, claiming it was a lethal weapon.
