    that is terrible! Remember the Sydney Airport Camel suit one on a Qantas flight?

    Bag handler took my camel suit

    My jaw dropped ... David Cox, inset, and the camel suit.





    Twenty minutes after David Cox checked in his bags at Sydney Airport, he watched astounded as a baggage handler was driven across the tarmac wearing the camel suit he'd packed in his luggage.
    Images of Schapelle Corby - and her claim that an airport worker had hidden drugs inside her boogie board bag - came to mind on Wednesday morning at the domestic terminal.
    The 34-year-old marketing manager was heading to Melbourne with a crocodile suit and the camel costume, both checked in as luggage 40 minutes before the departure of QF425 at 10.30.
    Twenty minutes before take-off, as he sat at Gate 4, directly in front of floor-to-ceiling glass, Mr Cox's attention was drawn to the occupants of a baggage trolley tug being driven across the tarmac below.
    "I'd heard a little kid say: 'There's a guy with a moose head', but I didn't even think to look," Mr Cox recalled. "It was a good three or four minutes later when I saw this thing go past."
    What went past below was the trolley tug driven by a man, with a passenger wearing the top half of Mr Cox's camel suit. Gobsmacked, he watched the vehicle - and the camel-headed handler - being driven back and forward between the terminal and the plane.

    "My jaw dropped," Mr Cox told the Herald last night. "And it wasn't just the one run, it must have gone around a couple of times."
    Mr Cox hoped his experience with the camel's head helped the defence of Schapelle Corby at the Gold Coast woman's Bali cannabis-smuggling trial that Brisbane baggage handlers planted drugs inside the cover of her boogie board. "The only question mark here is how it got from my bag onto his head."
    At Gate 4 on Wednesday morning, things happened very quickly once Mr Cox had spoken with a Qantas worker at the customer service desk.
    "I said to them: '20 minutes ago I checked my luggage through. I've just seen someone wearing part of the contents on the tarmac, and I want to know right now what you're going to do?' They were down within two minutes."
    Qantas has advised Mr Cox the incident is now the subject of a full inquiry by the airline's internal investigations team and that it will reimburse him for dry-cleaning the camel's head.

    "I don't see it reflecting poorly on the airline, they were as appalled as I was that it happened," Mr Cox said.
    Corby's lawyer, Vasu Rasiah, said the incident had important implications for her case.
    "I will see how we can introduce this," he said.
    "They [Qantas] have said that security is fantastic, that nothing can happen. Here is a chance we can tell that is not so."

    Yeah I want to see the camel video.
    Also, everyone had mobiles with video cameras in 05, on most you couldn't see anything and 15FPS was the norm(Ithink).

    Did they? Most had cameras that were about 1 to 2megapixels, very few that I know of had video recording, some opened the camera up and let you video chat but not record it, similar to a webcam setup.
