    Apologies for the bone question but has anyone ever tried to take an avalanche shovel in their hand luggage on a flight? And if so was it successful?
  2. Yep. A mate of mine did this about 2 years ago. It even had a saw in the handle. I doubt very much this is usual!
  3. I gather that Danish Tour Guides might not be that impressed.
  4. Not expecting the plane to land in the right place?
