I will be carrying a laptop with a external hard drive for someone in SP, along with my Canon 40D and a couple of lenses (packed into a small camera back pack) down to SP soon. I bought a soft sided, carry on size bag with wheels to put the equipment in. Am I going to be able to carry that on with me on Tropic Air?

Or could they refuse to let me do that at Belize air port? Or is it one of those "If it fits on your lap it's OK"?

I know Frank had a carry on size leather bag and sat in the co-pilot seat with the bag in his lap.
