I'm curious as to what sort of small Survival Kit you could have on board an airplane. Would you pack it in your checked luggage, or as carry on?
what would be in it?
I'm thinking fanny pack type carrier.
On a more serious note, could you take a military survival kit and adapt it to carry on? You would have to adapt it to the terraine you woulde be flying over, ie mountains, desert, oceans or jungle. For a fire starter, you would probably have to use a 9v battery carried in atransistor radio and some super fine steel wool. I wonder if there is a ceramic knife you could carry on or if there is an all ceramic gun you could pack? I don't know if you are going stealthly to get by security or just /trying to have something that would be permissible. I don't want to think about this topic too much as I don't need to create any problems for myself with the FAA or Homeland Security.
