Over a year ago, I flew on a domestic flight to another province.  I partly disassembled my Arrow and put it into my suitcase as it was the easiest way for me to transport it.

On the trip out, no questions.  On the way back, the luggage inspector asked what it was as it showed up on the scan.  He accepted my explanation when I told him I was a ham.  Maybe he was simply curious, but I had my amateur radio certificate with me just in case I had to give more details.
