Когда ваши сумки в следующий раз будут выворачивать наизнанку на досмотре в аэропорту, - просто вспомните этот пост. И улыбнитесь служащему.
1. Метательные ножи
#TSAGoodCatch - These weapons were discovered in carry-on bags last week. All knives and martial arts/self-defense weapons are prohibited from being transported in carry-on bags. They may however be packed in checked baggage, but it’s best to check local laws to ensure your weapons aren’t illegal to possess. Clockwise from top left: Throwing knives in zip-up folder (Tucson), Knuckle Knife (Orlando), Throwing Star (Dallas), Throwing Knives (Chicago O’Hare)
#TBT 2012 - These eels were discovered in a passenger’s checked bag at the #Miami (#MIA) International Airport. Among many other things, the passenger was attempting to transport 163 marine tropical fish and 22 invertebrates to #Maracaibo (MAR). The passenger surrendered the items to the @usfws (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service). #TSAGoodCatch
3. Микки Маус, внутри которого был разобранный пистолет
#TSACatch #TBT In May of 2012, a disassembled gun and ammunition were discovered in three stuffed animals at the #Providence TF Green Airport (#PVD). The frame of a .40 caliber firearm was in one animal; a magazine loaded with two .40 caliber rounds and firing pin was inside another; and the slide was inside a third animal. The necessary components to assemble a fully functional loaded firearm were concealed in the three toys. This is just another example of why our officers take a closer look at everything that comes through the checkpoint.
4. Противопехотная мина с надписью "макет"
#TSACatch #TBT - This replica Claymore anti-personnel land mine was discovered in a checked bag at the #Tulsa International Airport in November of 2012. Keep in mind that if an item looks like a real bomb, grenade, mine, etc., it is prohibited. When these items are found at a checkpoint or in checked baggage, they can cause significant delays because the explosives detection professionals must resolve the alarm to determine the level of threat. Even if they are novelty items, you cannot bring them on a plane. For the record, “Dummy” was already written on the mine upon discovery.
