Default Photographer loses gear as carry-on stolen

I am not sure if this is the correct place for this, but I thought I would post it for the information of folks who haven't seen it and who think their carry-on luggage may be safe. I am one of them.

The moral of this story is to keep your eyes on your carry-on camera luggage when the plane lands. I will definitely be doing this from now on.

I always take my photography gear carry-on but i always get speedy boarding, That way i can guarantee my gear is in the locker above my head and not half way down the plane, I was once asked by one of the cabin crew if they could move my bag to another locker about a dozen rows away and i very politely well not that very politely answered NO.

With all that's going on with the airlines today, it's a wonder they didn't throw you off the plane . Nevertheless, good for you.
