James Bond has many gadgets but a he was prevented from bringing a basic hunting knife on to a plane Vermont.

Pierce Brosnan was the Bond in question and perhaps he had to resort to this because access to Q is now limited to Daniel Craig.

The incident occurred at Burlington Airport in Vermont and Pierce was hard to say to his son that he "couldn't believe it."

After a brief chant with the security office Pierce handed over his knife and boarded without any lethal weapons - except for his hands.
