De vreemdste dingen die mensen mee proberen te nemen in het vliegtuig

Jeremy Houweling 10 dec 2016 Froot

Wanneer je van plan bent te gaan vliegen, neem je altijd een aantal spullen mee die je absoluut niet kan missen: Je paspoort, je mobiele telefoon en wat andere persoonlijke spullen. Andere spullen die niet zo handig zijn in het vliegtuig laat je dan even links liggen, maar toch zijn er een hoop mensen die op internationale vliegvelden worden tegengehouden omdat ze voorwerpen meenemen die niet echt normaal zijn…

Amerika’s Transportation Security Administration weet precies waar het om gaat en deelt via hun populaire Instagram account de meest bizarre voorwerpen die ze vinden op de Amerikaanse vliegvelden. Ook geven ze advies wat wel en niet mee mag.

1.

Machete + Carry-on Bag = Nope. If you find yourself needing to travel with your machete, please pack it in your checked baggage. This machete was discovered in a carry-on bag at Reagan National (DCA).

Don’t get yourself tangled up at the security checkpoint with a concealed comb knife. Knives are always prohibited in carry-on bags, but concealed knives such as this one can lead to a hairy situation such as fines and arrest. This comb-knife was discovered in a carry-on bag at San Diego (SAN).

“Paging Davy Crocket to the security desk…” This powder horn full of black powder was discovered in a checked bag at Boise (BOI). Black powder is an explosive and is strictly prohibited in both carry-on and checked bags.

Holy prohibited items, Batman! Who knew that batarangs were so popular? Our officers have discovered quite a few this year. This time, the batarang was discovered in a carry-on bag at LaGuardia (LGA). Please pack your #batarangs in your checked baggage. #TSAGoodCatch

We’re pretty sure this isn’t a letter opener. A bladed dragon claw perhaps??? Whatever it is, it should be packed in checked baggage. It was discovered in a carry-on bag at Atlanta (ATL).

Most people prepare frozen turkeys, but if you need to travel with your axe over the holiday, please pack it in your checked bag. Hatchets are prohibited in carry-on bags. This one was discovered in a carry-on at Baltimore (BWI).

Packing list: Socks. ✅ Toothbrush. ✅ Curling Iron. ✅ Post-apocalyptic bullet-adorned gas mask. ❌ While gas masks are allowed in carry-on bags, replica bullets are not. This was discovered in a carry-on bag at Miami (MIA). Maybe he was catching a one way flight to #FuryRoad?

#TSATravelTips – Don’t pack your homemade replica suicide vest. The traveler who packed this vest in his checked bag at Richmond (RIC) stated it was a prop intended for use in a live-action role-playing game (LARP). TSA explosives experts raced to the checked baggage room and the airport police were called immediately. Fortunately, the explosives experts determined the vest posed no danger. It has yet to be determined if the officer who searched the bag needed a change of clothing.

In sommige gevallen hierboven mochten spullen niet mee in de handbagage, maar wel in het ruimbagage. Twijfel jij zelf ook wel eens wat wel en niet mee mag in het vliegtuig? Wij kregen laatst van de Nederlandse douane een reeks interessante voorwerpen die werden meegenomen in naar het vliegveld, zoals onder andere vleermuizen en piranha’s. Benieuwd of die mee mochten? Check het hier!
