Selv-kapring?

Airports don’t trust pilots not to hijack themselves

SIR – As an airline captain I am also searched, along with my crew, prior to boarding our aircraft (Letters, February 16).

On one occasion, on an international flight, my nail clippers were confiscated – I assume security considered I might hijack myself with them. Prior to departure, the handling agent presented our pre-flight paperwork, together with a set of chef’s knives removed from a passenger. They were given to me for safe-keeping during the flight.

I stowed them next to the flight-deck crash axe.

Do not be alarmed. Be very very frightened, Arthur Dent!*
