If you were making a list of things to take with you on a plane, chances are a World War II-era bazooka round would not be one of them. The TSA would like to keep it that way.
The security agency periodically issues memos to travelers via its blog about items found during routine luggage scans and searches. At times humorous, at times informative, and other times downright bizarre, this recent posting certainly caught our eye.
The inert bazooka ammunition was discovered inside checked luggage and although the article does not indicate if the item made it to its final destination, we assume that it did not.
“I know they are cool novelty items, but it is best not to take them on a plane,” blogger Bob Burns noted in the post.
Fortunately, this was one of the more harmless items reported in the past week. Other items confiscated include a knife sewn into a bag’s lining and 11 stun guns inside luggage at various airports.
We’d caution that the nervous flier should not read these postings, as many of the items confiscated are actually quite dangerous and not anything like the snow globe story we reported on last year.
