I thought to place this cache because there is a story connected to that exact place where the cache is hidden:
About 2 years ago a man from Latgale ( a region in Latvia) was flying to Dublin, Ireland. He got a job there and most likely went to make some money for himself and a family of wife and two children he left home. Too bad the man was realy afraid of flying and had a lots of problems back home. So, naturally, he did what most men do in these kind of situations - he got relay drunk. Too bad that airlines have strict policy against really drunk people, usually, one is denied a entry to the flight, even after Check`in. So, an aggressive conversation started between the man and airport staff, they refuse to let him on the flight.. first he pleads, then starts threatening to kill himself, but the staff still refuse... After a few minutes of hopeless argument he turns around, heads straight to the opposite toilet, and hangs himself with his tie.

Even now some of airports staff tell the storie that they have sean or heard strange, unexplainable things in night shifts at airport...

- Area is not freely accessible to public, breaking an entry in the controlled territory will most likely end you up in prison.
- If you are unfortunately flying from and arriving to sector C, then cache is totally inaccessible.
- Use extream caution when looking for cache. Suspicious activity in airport could cause response from airport security and authorities.
- Put everything back as it was and make sure no one can see you when you take the cache.

Only geocachers who`s flights are leaving from and arriving to sectors A and B can access the cache. Arriving geocachers should not head straight to luggage collecting place as there is a door that will let you out but won`t let you back in...

When you find the cache, keep in mind that it happened near the place you now stand.

Due to a lot of complains about difficulty I suggest that you - my honorable geocachers keep in mind that this cache is located in secured area and everything hidden there must be difficult to find couse it's bean searched a lot by security! it's an airport for Christs sakes!!! So - use google for hint related to airports before lookin' for it and of course spoiler picture. It's placed in the description for a reason!!!
