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.
5. Снаряд для танковой пушки
#TSAGoodCatch - An inert 120mm tank round was discovered in checked bag at the Reno–Tahoe International Airport (RNO). Please 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 respond to resolve the alarm. Even if they are novelty items, you are prohibited from bringing them on the aircraft.
6. Маленькая собака - прямо в чемодане
#TSATravelTips - Ay, #Chihuahua! It’s always important to double check your bags before traveling, especially to make sure your Chihuahua hasn’t stowed away inside one of them. That’s exactly what happened this week at #NewYork’s #LaGuardia (#LGA) Airport. While resolving a checked baggage alarm, an officer was shocked when he found a dog in the bag! Apparently, the dog climbed in while its owner was packing her suitcase. TSA worked with the airline to identify the owner, and the two were happily reunited. #DogsOfInstagram #TSAGoodCatch
7. Травматическое оружие, которое выглядит, как мобильный телефон
8. Ручная граната
#TSAGoodCatch - This “monster” holding an inert grenade was discovered in a carry-on bag at the #EagleCounty (#EGE) Regional Airport in #Colorado. While this is a humorous novelty item, TSA officers don’t know items such as these are inert until explosives detection professionals, along with law enforcement, remove the item from the X-ray tunnel and resolve the alarm. This most likely will cause a closure of our checkpoint and lead to missed and delayed flights. Grenades, inert or otherwise, are prohibited from both carry-on and checked bags.
#TBT - In August 2011 at the #Miami International Airport (#MIA), seven small snakes (stuffed in nylon stockings) were discovered in a traveler’s pants. In addition to the snakes, he also had three small turtles. The snakes and turtles were found using TSA’s Advanced Imaging Technology which allows TSA officers to find potential threat items concealed from plain sight. @USFWS officers arrived on the scene and took custody of the reptiles. The passenger was arrested and charged with violating the Lacey Act.

11. Противотанковое оружие
12. Ружьё в сумке для гольфа
#TSACatch: (Left) 80 pounds of marijuana was discovered last Friday in a checked bag at the McClellan - Palomar (CRQ) airport in #California. (Right) Several vacuum-sealed bags of marijuana (about seven pounds) were discovered last Saturday in a check bag at the #Oakland International Airport. TSA is not looking for contraband, but it is reported to local law enforcement when discovered.
14. Хитро спрятанный нож
15. Крюкообразный нож в оловянной фольге
#TSAGoodCatch – These two 10-inch blade billhook knives were discovered in a carry-on bag this week at the #McAllen Miller International Airport (#MFE) in #Texas. All knives, including billhook knives, are prohibited from being transported in carry-on baggage. Knives can always be transported in your checked baggage.
16. И снова марихуана. Главное здесь - количество
