He hops up into the belly of this jet (don't remember which kind) and he disappears for a bit. A minute or to later, a HUGE brown box, that barely fit through the cargo do appears in the door - with HUGE labels "FRAGILE" and "THIS END UP" etc - and the guy just pushed it out the door to the tarmac - no belt outside, etc - just let it drop the 4 ft or so...

That was the day I realized that labels meant nothing - but shock sensors and tip indicators DO, when you pay for service for them NOT to be tripped

missed it. Anyway, I think we have beat this topic to death,
although how to ship machines and parts is of interest to a
number of us, as we fix up machines and add accessories. I've
had a lot of gear shipped to me, with a wide variety of results.
Every time I think I've done a great job of protecting something
I ship out, I might get a rude surprise.
