B-18A Bomber

Hi Sgt Bilko, thanks for starting this post, I love all the aircraft color shots, however I was amused by all the blue bombs on the trailer. I have attached a photograph of my cabin hand luggage twelve years ago when I returned from a trip to the States. I rolled up at the check-in, let the girl deal with my paperwork and passport got myself booked on the aircraft. Then I said ' could I see someone from security' she asked why ? was I carrying weapons, and I said no aircraft bombs. Well the guy from security turned up and I explained that I had two aircraft practise bombs, and that I would like them checked over before boarding. I got away with it then but I don't think you will any longer, times have changed. Cheers ( Lewis ) p.s you can see the airline luggage label attached to the closed box.
