Remember if you put a package in your luggage that they can not "see" into;
you will be asked off the plane to help search your luggage! This really
makes you very popular with the passengers, airline, and airport security.
Carry on only.

BTW I noticed in my wanderings on the net that Wall Street Camera has a
Viso-3 modified to a pellicle mirror.
