    Megalodon the one and only..

    Missing/Stollen Megalodon

    Please be on the lookout for a 2.7 megalodon green anadoized standard can..
    I flew to Chicago with my Meg for a week of wreck diving with a former student. Upon arrival to Midway. I went to pick up the case and almost fell over due to the lack of weight.. I opened it and it was empty.. MISSING... and NO the TSA said they didn't take it or they would have left a card (whatever)... The airline also doesn't know where it is or why it isn't there..
    At the airport the TSA monkey told me to leave the case unlocked so they could inspect it.. I said I'd wait while they did.. He said I wasn't allowed to??? Anyway I told them to make sure it was locked when they were done snooping through my bags without a warrant.. Good thing they listened eh..

    AHHHHHHGGGGG... Anger is like taking poison and hoping someone else will die.. Be the master jedi.... OHMMMM OHMMMMM OHMMMM OHMMMM...

    I will have the serial number posted as soon as I get back..

    If you were flying from Mexico to Chicago and the case was empty, it probably disappeared in Mexico. If you were flying home, then it is probably in Chicago.

    There was a JJ that disappeared under similar circumstances at JFK a few years ago. Showed up on eBay and was recovered last year.

    Hi Kris is this the Green Can Meg you were trying to sell not long ago mate. the one I used on my Mod 1 course?

    That is wrong ! you try so hard to make sure your Rebreather is packed well , so it's not damaged and hope it does make it to destination ...but for some low life scum bag to steal it ...

    Yeah, like TSA does not steal anything! That's a joke.
    Loved the story of an ipad with a location device planted in the luggage, got stolen, and news crew followed it to the TSA agent's house!

    Was it a TSA employee who stole the JJ from a Finnish diver and D. 5utt0n got it back?

    Megalodon the one and only..

    Re: Missing/Stollen Megalodon

    I was flying from Montana to Chicago.. It was packaged in a hard case wrapped in bubble wrap and very secure.. It's been all over the world.. Thailand, Egypt, Indonesia, Mexico... I'm disgusted... Called today and still nothing..

    Missing/Stollen Megalodon

    Wow ! Sorry to hear that !
    I had to check in my breather once when I have flown through JFK and I asked the tsa to assist with inspection but they gave me the same BS !! I then told them that inside of this box is the life support equipment and if due to improper assembly during inspection they damage something, that will most likely kill me underwater.. The agents then had to talk to their supervisor and he allowed me to go inside of the room and disassemble the unit for them.. I then put straps and two locks on the pelibox .. Still, after they throw it on conveyer belt I was worried and nervous until I got it back at the destination.. Since than carry on only !
    Any way, I hope you will find that bastard and get your meg back !

    Yes, Dave got it. Could have been TSA but more likely a baggage handler.

    I like the idea of putting RFID tags in something that gets checked.
