There is a stunt waiting to happen here, just to prove how ridculous this is.

Take one power lifter and a video camera on to an easyjet flight along with. One strong bag, filled with fine lead shot.

Assuming a volume of lead in the bag (packing density of lead spheres/ usable volume of bag etc.) of 50cm x 35cm x 15cm accoring to

This bag would weigh approx 297kg

Assuming our power lifter can carry it and lift it into the overhead do you think anyone from easy jet managment would be happy to sit beneath it? I would not...

What would this do to weight and balance?
