Just wondering how Lara gets through Airports loaded with
all of her gear. :rolleyes:

Hmmmm......
Does she have a quiet word with the staff
Does she totally avoid civilian air travel
Does she get on the plane without going through the airport

Because she's fictitious?

I would hazard at your second guess, Chris.

It's my theory, though, that she prefers to travel by her own means. Small, private planes, boats, driving when she can - anything that avoids commerical travel. It's more in her character.

As long as it's in your main luggage, not your hand luggage and you have the right papers you can get quite a bit through. Shot guns, rifles, machetes, how do you think legitimate explorers cope? :rolleyes:

But with a heavy nod to dhama's post ;) , I think most travel is conducted through private channels anyway.

No different from 'The Bride' from Kill Bill carrying an 'Hattori Hanzo' samurai sword onto a plane.. LOL :D I guess it wouldn't fit in those transparent 'sharp objects' box you find at airports. :p

Then what?! :eek: AJ is going to have to get on a plane herself to return them to Lara. And now, you're back at square 1. :D

Is she ? didn't stop James Bond - but I suppose he was
fictitious too. :D

Thanks for the replies -it looks like private air travel wins
It would be interesting to play a section where Lara turns
fugitive :rolleyes: within an airport trying to stand up for her aims
as a legitimate explorer- but is dashed by a lousy metal detector. :)

Maybe she's an Honuorary Air Marshall.
Then she could carry her guns on board.
:confused: :rolleyes: ;) :D

The custom Reign of Chaos (http://www.trle.net/reviewsearch/levelfeatures.php?lid=1337) series has an airport level as
the connector between the main levels.
Lara does have to shoot a few things to proceed.
Ther are guards, but they leave Lara alone if you don't shoot them.

Didn't Lara fly a helicopter or plane in TR2???... might explain things...

Lara indeed pilots a plane in TR2 and rides in a helicopter
and flies a helicopter in TR3, so her command of flying machines
is well versed.

Re ladylinnycrofts sock suggestion: Lots of giggles -Very good :p
I agree this could explain how Lara copes with airport
regulations and authorities :rolleyes:

I'm playing that now - I'm shooting them anyway, I thought they were terrorists - LOL :D

See why they won't let me in an airport with guns ???

I think she has her own licence of some sort, that passes her through.

I have no knowledge apart from that, so don't look at me!

In 1998 she was appointed an ambassador for British scientific excellence by Science Minister Lord Sainsbury of Turville (see article (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/225615.stm)), so I reckon perhaps the British government issued a diplomatic passport for her back then?

Before that ... I have no idea. Perhaps back then she acquired her weapons when she got to her destination.

I don't think she's the type who avoids commercial travel - I think she prefers to travel first class if possible, but when she's out in the jungle or desert, any mode of transportation will do.
