International Travel --Any Tips?

This a broad question, but I wanted to give it a shot. I'm traveling to the UK in a few months, from the US, and this is the first time I'll be bringing camera gear along. I'm bringing a 7D, 15-85mm, 70-200mm, 50mm (maybe) and a flash. Most will go into a Lowepro bag, and the 70-200mm will go into a Lowepro lens case, all pretty well padded. The bag and case will go into a duffel bag for carry-on, to make it a little less conspicuous.

Does anyone have any pointers on international travel with camera equipment, especially international flights with increased security and customs inspections? It seems like it should be straightforward enough, but those are famous last words so I thought I'd check on others' experiences.

Thanks.
