Many really small regional airports allow you to board without going through

Even larger airports have lax security. I had a warranty contract to repair on a case-by-case some 'Net access kiosks at Norfolk International (VA) near the gates and never had to produce a work order or any other proof of who I was or what I was doing there. Just told the security folks, "I'm supposed to work on those" and pointed down the hall. And there I went, large black bag and all...
