Will he be allowed to take it on the plane? I don't know, I've never tried to take a knife with me Anyone?
Depends on country and company poilicies, but I've done it. Obviously no hand baggage, and you need to declare it before checking in and bla bla bla.

Of course this applies to normal people like me and you, I'm pretty sure there's some kind of special policy for this case.

"It's been a real battle today," Contador said.

"Coming to a race and treating it as if it was a training ride is not something that I can do. I couldn't just sit in the bunch and do nothing. Attacking, is my style but you've got to have the legs to do it."

"I attacked on the second climb to whittle down the front group, then I attacked on the third climb to get the time bonus and get ahead of Evans, then me and Jesus Hernandez accelerated to try and gain even more time. Unfortunately Froome was too close."

"It's a pity that I didn't win the stage, there was just a few centimeters between us. But I'm not in top form and so I'm very pleased with the way we've ridden."

"I was close to the win and I'm pleased because of that and Oman is a perfect early season race. I'm heavier than I want to be by about 2.5kg but my form is getting better and better. Tomorrow (Saturday) will be a good training day and then I'll head home to recover."
Some interesting comments.

That reminds me of a story someone once told me. He was going through customs at an airport, I forgot where, when someone a few places in front of him was really slow. Everyone including the customs officer was very bored and a bit annoyed at his pace when the officer asked the guy to open his hand luggage. Because it took the guy so long, in the end the officer decided to help a bit and opened it himself.

Imagine the surprise when they found a half automatic weapon in plain view, fully loaded and complete with ammunition

And I'm not making this up.
