    Belfast International Airport remains appalling with security queues going outside the terminal building on occasion.
    Hi John,

    I've not had the experience of going through Int'l but Belfast City has been good to me in the past. Lovely wee airport, if that can be said about airports.

    City Airport is Ok. It has busy times but not so you have to arrive unusually early.

    Sad to say, the subject of what goes on under the kilt was brought up earlier by another poster. The David Duchovney posting exhibit was visual, while my posting was not accompanied by any visuals at all. You could have chosen to go on with out reading the post

    Sad to say, it is NOT an urban myth. I knew the certain Scottish lord. He was a man of a certain repute. He liked telling the story himself. Had he not had an artificial leg, he could have gone through the security scanner like anyone else. However, going through the scanner would require him to remove the artificial leg. Taking it off and reattaching it would take quite a bit of time, so he went through manual scan. (I wear braces on both legs and I know how long it takes to get them one compared to putting on a normal pair of shoes and leg braces are nothing compared to an entire prosthetic leg!)

    That certain Scottish lord died a few years ago while attending a highland games in Florida. He was to have been the honored guest while ours was the honored clan. I was unable to attend those games, but I'm quite certain that the mood was a bit somber in the clan booth.

    I looked him up. He seems to have been a pretty cool guy and quite the character.
