Rhaa, it appears that during my last flight, some lowlife stole my backup digicam which was stowed in the overhead bin (I was happily clicking away in the jumpseat). Has this ever happened to you and is your equipment insured again theft ?

sorry to hear that Will,

It's a shame that such things happen during a flight.... So it seems that no other passenger take care about these things...

Back to your question, yes, my equipment is insured against theft... although my lenses are not  Sad Think I'll have to change that...

Man, that really sucks! Can you complain to the airline about it? Or is there a rule that if you choose to store something in the overhead bin, it's your problem?

Fortunately, my equipment has stayed safe up to now...I guard it with my life!  Big thumbs up I should probably also get it insured at some point? Can someone tell me where would be a good place to do that (preferrably in Germany)?

Also, Will, how do you still manage to get jumpseat rides all the time? What's your secret?

I guess that's what happens in the end, you start thinking about the beginning.

Sebastian, still lots of ways to get on the jumpseat... asking is one ( not the best ) way  Big grin

My Equipment is not insured yet, may change that in the future...

the same thing happenned to me on my trip home from KSFO. i was flying through KCLT and had gone to fosherman's wharf to buy gifts for a few close friends before i got to the airport. well i left those gifts in a bag in the overhead and went to sleep. i was still asleep in the morning when i got to KCLT and had to practically run to catch my connection to KLGA. it wasn't until i was on the flight did i realize that the bag was missing. must have bene a connecting pax, cuz KCLT baggage service didnt get it.  Sad was worth a try anyway. this is the second time it's happenned to me. the first time, someone took my $400 scanner from my flight bag between pheonix and dallas.

I always put my camera under the seat in front of me and I would recommend it to everyone here.

Justin, were you by any chance on a flight recently, where Will was "happily clicking away in the jumpseat"?  Big thumbs up

I can't stand people that can't get their own toys...why take someone else's? I've been lucky, but I still feel for anyone that has lost something like that...it's not cool.

I miss jumpseat flying...used to do it all the time when I would go TDY on KC-135s. Flew up front on an RC-135 once--it's about the same. What I wouldn't give to swap that middle seat between the pilot and copilot for the seat on the left though... Big grin

UTA, greetings from Cork. A nice big Air Luxor A330 on the ramp just now so not quite as insignificant as some would think we are here at Cork!

Do you recommend the French internet camera company you quoted a few days ago with reference to the Sigma camera.

Merci!

Sorry to hear about the theft. Both camera and lenses are insured by my "People aborad" policy from my Swedish insurance company. Had my SonyF717 stolen at the airport at Nice just before Christmas last year and they replaced it. No questions asked.

Sidenote: Do anyone of you know how Iberia/Air Nostrum is in terms of allowing jumpseat rides?

I also have a Sony F717 for sell that I got in the South of France.

I have insurance for all my gear. I had a weird dream about my D30 getting dropped in water, it was scary!  Sad Hehe.

Cheers,

Justin  Big thumbs up
