    Re: Film on a Plane: Check It or Carry-On?

    Thanks everyone. All good stuff to keep and hold for the future.

    Sadly, my wife and I have decided to cancel our trip to Estes Park Colo and RMNP in October. We will wait till the pandemic mutations and booster shot situation shakes out some more. We are both in at least one high risk group.

    Again: Thanks to all.

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!

    A few years ago I put film in one of those lead shields; the x-ray scanning technician couldn't see what was inside it: I had to remove it from my bag; the film was hand inspected.

    There is a very long thread on Photrio about the newish airport scanners.
