Flying after 8/10

This morning the news on Star 107 radio were all about the foiled terrorist attack on planes leaving the UK. In the evening all the airports are still in a state of total chaos. My wife and I are very fortunate that our flight to Germany is scheduled for next friday and not for tomorrow. We will probably not be allowed to take any hand luggage with us. Leaving the notebook and the iPods at home is not too bad but we also wanted to transport a delicate present with us. I’m not sure whether that will be possible.
