This is a question Airport Stories

Back when I was a moody teenager I took a cheap flight that involved changing planes and having to go through security again. My bags were pre-checked so, when I set off the metal detector, I honestly said to the security guy that I had no idea what had set it off.

Until, that is, he searched me and found the metal knife and fork stamped "KLM" I'd nicked off the previous flight.

Tell us your best airport stories.

Teenage apathy.
Back when I was a mere nipper (well, about 14) I used to be in the Air Cadets (which I guess kind of gives me a divine right to post some sort of airport story) - anyway, this one day I've been volunteered to do some helicopter marshaling. Which was fun. Got a lift from Elstree airport in a little Bell Jetranger (Registration G-DOFY - renamed after the Duchess Of York who learnt to fly in it... yes, I was in Budgie the fucking helicopter) over to Marlow where the marshaling was taking place. After a very uneventful day we flew back to Elstree airport where, upon landing, the pilot turned to me and said "I've just heard on the radio that Axl Rose is just landing. Fancy meeting him?". My reply? "Nah, fuck it, got to get home, Neighbours is starting soon."

Oh well :)
