When a friend of mine, Angry Pete, opened the hatch of his Honda Pilot, he didn't heed the advice of countless flight attendants. The contents had shifted and the bag holding my 500mm f4 af-s II, D300 and tc-17e (retail value over $10000) rolled out into the parking lot of the park we were visiting to photograph a kestrel.
Let's see how well my camera insurance comes through....
500mm mount damage
Nikon D300 body damage
tc-17e teleconverter mount damage
