    Either works
    Checked is safer (in case the guards get over-zealous) but I have yet to have a problem and I fly with it in my carry-on a minimum of 10 times a year
    Bb: Courtois 305 "Elite", Holton Al Hirt Special (~1966), Benge 3x with Upturned bell (1973)
    C: Bach C180-239 (Akwright conversion),
    Cornet: Conn Wonder (1900)
    Picc: Selmer Paris, ~1971

    Re: trumpet on plane....please help

    When travelling internationally, (especially London) your horn gets swabbed down (at least mine does) to see if traces of forbidden substances are present. I have also been asked to remove the slides so that they can look inside. They never have looked in the mutes though..........

    Once they wanted me to pay tax on the horn because they didn't believe that I was a trumpet player and therefore a smuggler. I had 3 horns in the case, one for classical, one for jazz and one for high notes . I asked them which one they want to hear, they said jazz and I played the intro to Maynards Gospel John. After the first G above high C there was a lot of attention being paid and I was allowed to take the horns and go. It is proof: the squeaky wheel gets the grease.
    Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.
