    The case was about to be loaded into the van along with another flight case and a backpack containing my laptop and notebooks for the weekend. The chap driving the can didn't see the cases and just drove straight over them, only to be screamed at by his mechanic to stop.

    Pft.

    Mate of mine got his Lowepro Phototrekker ran over by a Land Cruiser somewhere in Africa. Contained his D3, 24-70, 70-200 and a couple of SB800s. Nothing broke.
