    Sextants and Airport Security
    From: Robert Eno

    Has anyone tried to carry their sextant on board an aircraft since 9/11 and all of the security foolishness that has come to pass since then?
     
    Prior to 9/11, I used to visit friends in the US on a regular basis and brought my sextant with me to practice on the water. Even back then, I got a lot of quizzical looks from the security drones but was able to get through OK.
     
    I am wondering what the situation is nowadays. I cannot even imagine consigning my sextant to general baggage and would still want to carry it on board with me but I can imagine that it must be a real hassle to get it past the airport screening.
